    with the OEM System Builder version of Windows 8, you need Windows 8-certified hardware for the touch features to be enabled. However, the upgrade retail version does allow you to use any touch hardware. So the only option is to reinstall Windows with the upgrade retail instead of the system builder version. Or wait for someone to figure out what the settings are that need to be changed.

    System builder versions of Windows 8 require Windows 8-certified hardware to enable touch.
