Windows 8 Developer Dual Boot and Overclock issues.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I installed a Dual boot of Windows 8 Developer Preview on a system that has Windows 7 64, overclock was nice and stable and happy. Can't get past stock clocks no matter what I do now with the Windows 8 dual boot. Its interesting because in order to go to Windows 7 it loads a GUI for windows 8 then allows you to continue with 8 or select 7. When ever I try to bump my processor up in speed at any increment, Windows 8 gives me this cheesy message with a frown face "were sorry your computer encountered an error it couldn't handle and is shutting down" sometimes with artifacts populating the screen. It also will boot and "attempt repairs" which I hard shutdown and start again on stock clocks and it acts as if nothing happened.

anyone else experiencing this?thumb.gif

Yes... I am experiencing exactly the same problem. Apparently, Windows 8 Developer has locked-out overclocking and just kills the system if you try to overclock the CPU.
