I also really liked the new logo, but after setting VGA support to auto, it just goes straight to the Windows 8 login screen. (It seems slightly faster, but I haven't timed it.)
I don't know what the difference is between the OS Type settings for "Windows 8" and "Windows 8 WHQL". Both seem to work just fine on my system. (I know what WHQL means, I just don't see what the practical difference is in the BIOS setting here.)
I was also confused by the PS2 BIOS setting given that there is no PS2 port. I must be missing something.
I would be interested in any insights on those.
The only real issues I have seen since the release of the official Windows 8 OS are:
1. USB 3.0 working fine on the INTEL header, but problems recognizing some USB 3.0 devices on the headers with VIA hubs. (Specifically a recently RMA'd Corsair Flash Voyager. I ordered a different USB 3.0 flash drive -Lexar JumpDrive Triton 32 GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive- to see if it makes a difference.)
2. Occasional spontaneous reboots (event Kernel-Power ID:41, but I haven't had one in 4 days now). I suspect it might be a problem with Cisco Anyconnect VPN whch is the only software generating lots of errors on my system (My institution is using an older version of Anyconnect, so that might be the problem). However, given that this was happening a few times each day and is now either very rare or completely gone, it might have been an OS bug that has been fixed. (fingers crossed - this never happened under Win8 CP or RP.)
