    If you replace Win7 with Win8, you will be FORCED to use the default Windows Basic video driver -- as I have said repeatedly, there is NO video driver for this chipset that works in Windows 8.

    Windows 8.1 Pro 32-bit

    Does that mean can I still use the new Windows 8.1 with the Basic driver? And for the video graphics purposes i'll use Win XP Pro SP3.
