Hi guys, I would like to know if any of you have this same motherboard (Asus P6X58D Premium) and also have installed the new Windows 8 operative system, I wanted to give it a try, BUT, I first checked the ASUS website for drivers, and the latest ones are the ones for Windows 7 and I don't know if they will release another ones for Windows 8 in the future.
If any of you have any experiences or any ideas of how this would work, let me know please.
PD: I remember that I once installed Windows 8 release preview, and my drivers didn't work, I had to right click them and change the compatibility to Windows 7, but I don't know if that's a good idea.
The link that Chris had was for BIOS (i.e. no Win 8 drivers), certain Widows 8 boot features might be lacking e.g. Secure boot and UI but otherwise you should be fine. Afterwards use the same bit size drivers as you did for Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit) though I only recommend a 64-bit Windows 8.
Do you think the drivers for those other Motherboard might work for my motherboard?... Even if its another motherboard (same family I guess) ?.
Yea I previously used Windows 7 64-bit drivers when I installed Windows 8 release preview, but I had to right click all of them and change the compatibility to Windows 7 in order for them to work. Also that software that you told me (Upgrade Assistant) work fine, It tells me which programs will and which ones will not work on Windows 8 at the moment.
