Hey Sean thanx for the really helpful guide and the rest people here for sharing their experience. I installed Windows 8 under UEFI/GPT mode, applied most of the tweaks and I have to say that my lappy is blazing fast and stable. Just want to add some info on how to install the Intel Rapid Start Technology since it was somehow different due to the GPT partitioning. So after a little bit of search I found a guide on how to create the hibernation partition that is required in order to install the Rapid Start driver. Check this link and apply at will. Hope it helps.

Sean, I followed your guide for Win 7 with my m4. Should I just run an in place upgrade or will reformatting the drive for use with Win 8 show a better performance difference?.

We shouldn't need to disconnect any other drives should we? It's more of a precaution right. Only reason I ask is because I really don't want to have to move my computer out and unhook every single drive I have in there lol.

"Double-click on "EnableSuperfetch" and enter "0" (default value is "3")"

This value is not present in my registry. Can I just ignore it?

Yea you can. I need to go through and revise this as it was written when teh preview betas were out, now that the RTM version is out I can adjust and verify things better.
