    Most probably, your netbook has hardware that Windows 8 doesn't support yet, or there was an error installing the software. Re-install Windows 8 and see if it works. If not, wait for updates :S

    What is the netbook model and what specs does it have? It may have insufficient hardware resources to run windows 8

    It might be the graphics driver of RT. I am having all kinds of problems with it too. Those problems were not present in the CP version. Maybe you want to try to install the CP version for a test.

    When you installed the CP version, did you have the same problems?

    Btw: I now run Win8 in Virtual Box. That is smoother. It is sufficient for testing but would not qualify for a serious production system. I also have 1 version that runs from a USB3 stick. That is really fun but has a few restrictions. Advantage is that you can run it on any system with a USB3 port.
