    Hi, I have many issues after update to windows 8, sorry for my poor English.
    Mother board : Asus M5A99X EVO

    1- My graphic card start giving me "Kernel mode" error.
    2- Motherboard sometimes not recognize my C: drive "I need to go bios menu 5 or 6
    times and press F10 to restart again" and then start recognize and boot normally.
    3- Would not restart properly "have to press turn off button every time to shutdown pc"
    4- When pc turn off, graphic card or usb not go off.
    5- Motherboard bios update utilities "Version 1.24 or 1.26" still not working on
    Windows8 Pro 64bit. "i have latest bios"

    Hi there
    did you install the Mobo drivers. You usually get a disk with a Mobo. Most of the W7 drivers *should* work -- note not all though

    cheers

    ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS M5A99X EVO yes I did its look like no driver problem, I contact Asus answer is :
    First, we do not support win 8 for this board , but the R2.0 version does.
    Second, for your issue, I suggest you to update chipset drives to the latest for a try.

    That's ridiculous.

    I'd use any of the drivers for the M5A99X EVO R2 that aren't motherboard-specific, like the AMD chipset drivers. I never use the Asus AI software anyway, so it'd be no loss for me.

    the M5A99X EVO don't have integrated graphics card, so what is your GPU ? Cause I have a hell of time with a Nvidia Kernel crash 2 weeks ago

    Asus don't update the driver because they are Available on AMD web site

    Agree AI is crap
