I never want to go back (or forth :razz to Windows8, too fancy, too troublesome to always have to switch between windows to perform a simple task like starting an application, no easy quick way like the Start menu in Win7 to launch a program.Keas wrote: ↑well although i have a z77 board i have both intel and via drivers for the usb so you might look into via for the drivers. other drivers may be from marvel(sp). it is too bad you dont have a friend with a win 8 disk you could borrow and use to install. You may search windows website for a downloadable window 8 iso but i am not sure if they still have it up since the 39.99 deal is over. Worth looking for though.
in case you didn't know it is about a 2 gig download so not that big if that is one reason your hesitant to download one.
Really, Windows8 was designed for touchscreen devices.
As of now, everything (except the front usb ports) works on my Win7 hp system with a barely okay 5-year old graphics card. It would be nice to have front usb ports for ease of access, I don't really care if it's usb 3.0 or not.
