Re: [WIN8] Windows 8 - best to pass it up: review Read more: ht

Plain and simple. If anyone has 7. No rush for 8 atm. Give it 6 months to a year and see what happens. No surprise with install problem with that particular HP machine. If you had read HP stance on older machines. Any pc purchased between Oct. 1 2011 and after. They will offer driver support. You was sol from the start. I have a newer Phoenix from them bought in Feb. 2012. It came with 7. I upgraded to 8 in 10-15 minutes with HP drivers installed. My system came with a ssd. I have had zero trouble with 8 crashing or running. It runs smooth, and faster then 7. Same with boot times. And that is with disabling the cheat system they use for booting in 8. I use high performance power plan. And deleted the hibernation file.
