    not sure what "N" is, I had W7HP OEM on this HP laptop, I upgraded to W8Pro x64 back when it first came out via on line, (later burned me an ISO) , than used the store free update to 8.1, the UP1 was a bit of a PITA, had to get hold of a torrent ISO that had the up1 in it to be able to install it on my machine, using a public install key and than validating my retail copy with my W8 pro retail key.

    But any of those 3rd party programs work with no problems on my W8.1.1 now.

    btw: there is no W8 "ultimate"

    Might want to try and actually buy Windows 8/8.1 instead of using a torrented pre-activated version. That and you will get zero help from anyone here until you do.

    sorry my friend, i'm from cuba my friend, no mean to offence, i can't buy any windows here, only pre-activated and public keys works, so is that or nothing, and is not my fault about the politics from U.S.A, so i don't care about that, they want me to pay for ? well lift the embargo if not, then screw'em ..,
    P.D: You are not obligated to lend me a hand here, you want to do it ? fine if not, no hard feelings, i just wan to stae my point of view here, you decided if im welcome or not here, if not, well that will be a petty, coz i have the best intentions here, so it's up to you mates.

    WHQL is an acronym for Windows Hardware Quality Labs.
    The Labs provide various test suites for hardware and software including suites which allow device drivers to be tested and 'signed'. A 'signed' driver is deemed stable and ready for use on a specific operating system such as Windows XP and Microsoft allows the vendor to claim that it is "Designed for Microsoft Windows XP". Products that meet the compatibility requirements are also allowed to display Windows logos on product packaging, advertising and other marketing materials, indicating that the product has met the standards of Microsoft and that the product has been designed to work with the Windows operating systems.

    Stable release does not guarantee anything. Stable version of drivers from NVIDIA and ATI literally burned some GPUs. A difference is basically, that a stable version contains bugs, no one knows about. Beta or RC contains known bugs, that will be fixed. I always use alfa, beta or whatever is available.
