You guys sound like Pros at this so excuse a couple noob questions:

1) I'm currently running XP Pro on the PC I want to dual boot Win 8 with. I set up a separate partition to put Win 8 on and got it installed no problems. What I DON'T HAVE is the option to boot to Win 8 or Win XP in the boot menu, only Win 8 is there. I've got alot of work stuff on the Win XP partition so I had to put the Win 8 disc back in and delete it's partition to be able to re-start and get back to XP.
Anyway I havn't noticed anyone else with a Win 7 or other dual boots have this issue.

2) Do I have to install my mobo and chipset drivers upon Win 8 install completion. What are you guys doing about missing drivers in Device Manager.

1) That is weird. Maybe it's a problem with the Preview that will be corrected in the future. It has that secure boot function that will apply to new computers, I don't know to what extent that might be messing things up right now.

Anyway, when I had Windows 7 Beta and then RC installed in 2009 along with Windows XP, the boot menu would call Windows XP "Other OS"; I think that was a problem because Windows 7 64-bit could only read 64-bit OSes names and since Windows XP is 32-bit, it was just listed as "Other OS". You don't even have that on the list ?


2. Windows 8 comes with a lot of drivers (probably all that Windows 7 has and more), and you shouldn't have to install any chipset drivers. But even if you want to, I'd avise you to go to the motherboard or chipset manufacturer and download the most recent ones.

As to missing drivers, what is missing ? You can try installing the drivers for either Windows Vista or Windows 7. Just stay away from graphics drivers for now, use the ones Windows installs.

I didn't bother keeping up on all the responses, but just so you all know the developer preview is now compatible with VmWare Player 4

I found the answer to the XP, Win 8 dual boot problem. I installed 8 again on a separate partition, no problem.
Boot into 8 go to 'Computer', 'System Properties', 'Advanced', 'Start Up and Recovery', 'Settings', there you can change the 'Default Operating System' from Win 8 to 'Earlier Version of Windows'. Reboot and you now have the option to boot Win 8 or 'Earlier Version' Google 'Dual Boot Win 8 and XP' for more details.
Also I got all the drivers except 'Microsoft Device Association Root Enumerator' in device manager. It calls it an ' Unknown Device' but says it's working properly.

Pretty excited about the ARM support It will be awesome to have Windows tablets as small as like a droid tablet, although the Acer W500 (Windows 7, thus an x86 proc) is pretty slim for how powerful it is.

Does it bother anybody else that, when you're using the Metro GUI, you can't drag the screen to get to other areas that are off-screen? You have to use a scroll bar? Seriously? The login screen makes you drag the picture out of the way, why not let you drag Metro tiles around? Ridiculous...

But yeah, seems like a decent OS for tablets with Metro, and I can think of a few potential work uses for Metro, but for my home PC I'd be using it with the start menu hack.

Just gotta find the space to test this on on my home PC to see how well all my insanely various utilities work. I have it running on a work PC, but there's only so much I can do with that...
