Hi,

Had just install Windows 8 consumer preview. However am facing the problem,

1. Audio device not working. Its being replaced by MS drivers. Tried installed Realtek Drivers running in compatibility mode (window7) does not help. Still unable to enable audio services.
2. It cannot detect DVD ROM and additional HDD (Can be detected in BIOS Level)

Am running 4GB Ram on a Gigabyte 965-DS3P mobo with a Samsung SATA DVD WriteMaster.
ACHI is not enable.

Any advice?

You might get more help on the Windows 8 forums, most likely Windows 8 preview does not have all the OEM drivers up to date, especially for older hardware.

Good Luck.
