    New BIOS => EFI

    Disable them in the BIOS or just unplug them then. If that doesn't work, then wtf is MS smoking. ~Lordbob

    New BIOS => EFI

    Well the kicker is that Windows is booting of a speedy little SSD, thus the quick boot up time. My point was that the BIOS takes longer to POST to get into the Windows boot than the Windows boot takes, which doesn't make any sense. POSTing should be pretty quick, not take that long. ~Lordbob

    Most members online?

    I like that this is an active forum and we don't even know much of anything about W8! Pretty epic following we have actually... ~Lordbob

    New BIOS => EFI

    Takes my computer longer to POST than it does to load Windows with EFI. Probably about 8 seconds from hitting start to getting to the windows loading screen, which is maybe 5 seconds from there to log in. ~Lordbob

    Solved will there be a NON touch screen version?

    Well, having the option to have a touch screen seems inevitable to me, but considering the number of people who don't like that, it is doubtful it would be ONLY touchscreen. ~Lordbob

    Solved will there be a NON touch screen version?

    Why would anyone assume that it would be touchscreen only? Why would you assume that it will be enabled on default? Most users do not own a touchscreen monitor or tablet, and if Windows 8 came out only with touchscreen, it would never sell. I am dead certain that default install will be mouse...

    Windows 8 Allows Xbox 360 Games to be Played on PC

    This won't be happening. XBox makes too much money selling games, they would never port it to PC. Even if they did, the games would be total crap. My computer could probably run 3 of them at max graphics at once and they would still look terrible. ~Lordbob

    New BIOS => EFI

    I have an EFI motherboard right now, and to be honest, it really isn't any different from the BIOS. Same options, exact same menus, just reskinned and the mouse is enabled (which I don't use because it is overly sensitive). On the other hand, it does look nicer. That's really the only...

    Possible Installation/Upgrade Options

    You still have to make it yourself, and it would make MS look good by doing that. ~Lordbob

    Double checked again today, still all gone, just the way I like it :) I consider this an annoying but good learning experiment, I now know how to get rid of ants quickly. ~Lordbob

    Possible Installation/Upgrade Options

    You can buy a 4 gig flash drive (all thats needed) for around $10. I would be willing to pay that much more for a USB install "disk" over an actual DVD. It installs about twice as fast easy (I used one to install onto my SSD). ~Lordbob

    Possible Installation/Upgrade Options

    I really hope its distributed through a flashdrive instead of a DVD, but that's doubtful. Would be a nice extra option for say, $10 more (I would pay). ~Lordbob
