    You have been given enough advice here:https://www.eightforums.com/hardware-...ndows-8-a.html
    EDIT: Create a recovery disc as theog said in the other thread, most of the drivers provided by Windows 8 will work, you may have to look for some drivers, whether you want an Upgrade or Custom Install down to you but most here would suggest a Custom Install (Clean Install).

    No, I wasn't angry or annoyed but merely pointing out that you have already posted and was given help, peace.

    Yes, there's a very big chance it's true.

    At least I can say that after confirming it for a Vista to 7 upgrade.

    All needed (missing) drivers that were already installed in Vista were kept for Win7 as well.

    In your case:
    Use all the latest Win7 drivers and only update those available for 8 after the upgrade.
    You'll have to see for yourself how the upgrade goes.

    Good luck.
