HyperSLI on Windows 8?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Now, I'm not sure if this question should go in here, or in the AMD motherboard section, but it's definitely worth a try.

I have been running Windows 8 for awhile now, and just recently obtained a second GTX 470. I've booted into a Windows 7 installation, with HyperSLI installed, and everything went great! The only problem is that the majority of my programs/settings are on my Windows 8 drive, and I'm not quite in the mood to move it all over.

Are there any workarounds to getting HyperSLI working on Windows 8, along the lines of a registry hack or special file?

Thats it? No support for windows 8 at all, or is there going to be future work to get this working?

New here on TechPowerUp. Heard of HyperSLI, and despite reading that it's currently not supported under Windows 8 I decided to give it a shot anyway far as a second confirmation (more test-monkeys for you guys).

OS: Windows 8 Professional / retail

Steps:
-Used Windows 7 disk to overwrite Windows 8 bootloader with Windows 7 bootloader.
-Disabled UAC via registry key .. tested that batch file can execute mklink, which would require administrative rights otherwise.
-Installed HyperSLI 0.9

-Install reported "success" / reboot to proceed.
-On reboot and choosing the created bcd entry, this following is what's shown.

Code:
Your PC needs to restart.
Please hold down the power button.
Error Code: 0x00000100
Parameters:
0x0000000000000006
0x0000000000000002
0x0000000000000118
0x00000000000008F0
-Replaced HyperSLI 0.9 install with every older version. Identical error message. But eh, going for being thorough here.
-Checked that referenced HAL and Kernel exist in system directory from BCD entry.



System still can be booted, no harm done (at least having replaced with the Windows 7 loader first). Don't even need to restore a backup image.

Will try future versions as they're released. Cheers!

I guess that's as thorough as it can get. Oh well, I'll just need to get a new mobo and proc then. Thanks!
