Hello EF members.

Today, I installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview 64-bit (Dual-Boot) with Windows 7 and its great.

Now I want to install drivers for my current build.
Can I use Windows 7 64-bit drivers (I will download for manufactuer website) or there is special Windows 8 drivers ?

And one small offtopic :
How to close Apps there (ex. Store or Xbox live) ? There is not legendary "X" and Esc dont work.
I know that is stupid question but.. :eek: :eek:

You should be able to use win 7 drivers if you install them in compatibility mode

(right click the installer>properties>compatibility>choose win 7

Upper left corner right click to close.

hi Baltic,

depends on what drivers. But I do not think many drivers are both for Windows7 and Windows8.
For me it is impossible the use my OKI C710 printer, so I use right now my Lexmark printer which does not give any problem.
On my other computer and Windows7 the OKI works fine.
Cannot use it via the network either.


So you will have to try it out.

Jeff
