Drivers

Hello.
I know its a bit silly to ask this but I am still a bit confused.

I have recently installed windows 8 along side windows 7 , now I had all my chipsets driver , graphics drivers etc installed on windows 7

but do I need to install them on windows 8 also...???


I feel that I do need to install all of it again on windows 8 but just wanted to be sure of it..??
and will all these drivers be compatible with windows 8??

  1. but do I need to install them on windows 8 also...???
    Yes

    and will all these drivers be compatible with windows 8??
    Check with the manufacture.
  2. Windows 8 will install them for you.. Not many drivers developed for windows 8, thats why they just make windows 7 drivers compatible with 8's architecture
  3. Rockdpm...hey you are saying that windows 8 will install them for me...so that means i do not need to install any drivers on 8 manually....
  4. You'll need to install those that are not installed for you at the time of the installation. Also, My understanding and experience on my rig is that most were installed. A few I had to DL myself from the manufacturer and use Win7 drivers. This is not to say that ALL Win7 drivers will be compatible, but it is worth a try. Personally, I didn't run into this problem. My install ran like a charm. Good luck.
