    Conflicts During Upgrade Assistant


    I ran the upgrade assistant, and got these "problems" in the results...

    Thanks so much!

    Re-installing the devices after setting Win 8 up fixed
    most issues, and Win 8 itself handled the rest.

    how did you "reinstall" the device drivers after installation?
