    Installing windows 8 on to old toshiba laptop?

    I can't find windows 8 drivers on "Toshiba drivers" web page, will I be able to install windows 7 drivers instead?
    Also how do I find out whether I have wddm driver installed once I got windows 8 running? (on windows 8 download page is says I need wddm driver)

    Thanks for support!

    I've atacched a my system *.nfo file, If you can review it and see if I may have some problems installing and setting up windows 8 I would appreciate it

    The best way to resolve this issues “Driver installation” would be to use compatibility mode; the reason it’s because the driver that we want to install has an older version that is not being recognize by Windows 8. Please follow the link bellow for the steps in how to use compatibility mode in Windows 8.

    Good Luck
