    Windows 8 (re)installation wqith multiple monitors


    I have an ASUS mother board and don't use an graphics card.

    I had two monitors and an HDMI cable plugged in.
    The short story is that the Intel drivers seem to get lost.
    Windows installed normally until it went into to the final setup.
    The program will switch to another screen at this point and picked a monitor and the HDMI to TV connection.

    Unplugging the HDMI cable allowed me to finish.

    Now he tells me

    Part of the long story I left out included trying (what I thought) was one monitor. I unplugged one, tried, then tried the other.
    I gave up and as my head hit the pillow hours later the fact that the plugged in HDMI cable might be the problem hit me.

    2 monitors and installed windows multiple times no problem, TV on the other hand can be a problem until proper drivers installed. Trick is to have computer connected to internet while installing windows, most of the time it will pick drivers thru internet, failed me only once for some obscure piece of hardware.

Currently, I run Windows 7 Pro on dual 24" monitors, and life is good. :):) In Win 8, if I open the desktop tile, I presume that the default action is to open the full-screen desktop app on just 1 of the 2 monitors. I'm guessing that the "Start" screen remains on the 2nd monitor. Can I have...
