    driver updates


    Hello
    Does anyone know if it will be necessary to update drivers etc. for Windows 8.1 as it was for Win 8?
    I refer specifically to my HP AIO which required quite a large update to work with Win 8.
    I understand the update not upgrade will occur in Sept or Oct and the RTM date in Aug.
    I ask about the drivers etc. as I did not install the preview edition and perhaps some have done so and can speak to experience..
    Thank you
    Peter

    Hello Peter,

    Usually the same drivers will work fine, but it wouldn't hurt to check the device manufacturer's website to see if they may have any newer driver versions that support 8.1 as well that may work better.
