Good article! I have long decided to avoid Windows 8, but this is good for providing reasons why to avoid it to people.

Fast isn't so good if it's hard to use and is buggy.

I am damn very impressed with Windows 8 so far. Microsoft did very good job to make it the future direction of Windows.

I completed upgraded my PC from Phenom II 940 to Core i7 3770K last week when I noticed something really very fascinated. I backed up data to spare hard drive before upgraded the new hardware and used the same internal 2TB hard drive with 2 partitions loaded with Windows 7 and 8 in it. I was about to formatted the hard drive but I decided to booted Windows 7 first with logo bootscreen then see what happened so it went BSOD because of new hardware changed from AMD motherboard to Intel motherboard, I expected the same thing with Windows 8.

When booted Windows 8 and the logo bootscreen came up to configured getting the devices ready, it last 10 secs to reached 100% then it restarted and Windows 8 booted until it reached lockscreen, I logged in and went in desktop to checked Device Manager confirmed new hardware changed to Intel CPU, Intel motherboard and DDR3 memory went smoothly and everything worked perfect with all apps ran flawless without BSODs. :eek: :D

Few days ago I noticed one device called PCI Simply Communications Controller Windows 8 cant find driver for it so it turned out to be Intel Management Engine Interface so I found latest Windows 8 driver online and installed then restarted and noticed something very fascinated, after restarted I wasn't at ASUS UEFI logo bootscreen but actually on Windows 8 logo bootscreen then reached locksreen. Wow with the driver saw Windows 8 had very fast 5 secs reboot. (nana2)

So you don't need to worry about change new motherboard and CPU with Windows 8 that you don't ever needed to backup data, reinstall Windows 8 or format hard drive. ;)

It time to say farewell Windows 7, Windows 8 is the future.

Once you practice with PCs a bit more you might get the hang of it.

You sound so much like you work for MS. How often people have to do what you did?.. what if the hard drive crashes? still need to use a backup.

I think I will wait for windows 9 :)

Cant find your thread, you got only 100 threads dated back far as 18 Aug 2010, well it seemed all the rest of your threads was lost after NvNews hacked.

I am NOT spreading BS!

My new P8Z77V mobo did not have IDE ports, the UEFI only got HDD settings of either ACHI and SATA. I cant get into Windows 7 safe mode to uninstalled drivers cos of BSOD. But I find Windows 8 really incredible when it booted first time it detected new motherboard and configured without had to uninstalled drivers, you really don't need to changed UEFI/BIOS settings, just leave it alone.

Others had same problems I had, only solution to fix Windows 7 BSOD after changed AMD to Intel motherboard is to reinstall Windows 7 or changed HDD setting to IDE in BIOS.

Edit: I looked at further 27 pages in CPUs, Motherboards And Memory, 50 pages in General Hardware and 14 pages in Windows 7 forum dated back to July 2009 when Windows 7 was RTM still cant find your thread. Maybe lots of threads gone missing after hacked.

So very fast. Once POST has completed, Windows boots in about half a second. There's life in this old dog of a machine yet!

All the benefits of reformatting, with way less pain in the ass. I tend to use the desktop, browser and traditional apps mostly, so it's fair to say beyond the performance I'm not seeing major benefits. Still, it has new car smell.
