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??

Check with the manufacture.

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

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.
