    Yeah, I got the Intel HD 4000 driver directly from Acer for Windows 8 and it installed and worked just fine.

    Wait... I'm getting ready to install this, but was having some trouble. But you are saying if I install the preview over my legit copy of Win 8 I will get a watermark? Forget that. Nothing compelling enough in this update to deal with all these problems.

    Thanks for the info, though.
    Is a watermark really a problem?

    It installs but doesn't actually work !

    That is what I have been waiting to hear to see if M$ broke the Shell Programs if that is the case M$ XBone will be a rain squall compared to whats coming.
    Classic Shell 3.5.x doesnt work correctly in Wndows 8.1 Preview, but latest version 3.7.1 works !

    Yeah. If it wasn't a problem for people they would put a watermark on the final retail version. But they don't because it is.

    The original button bitmap appears over the Classic Shell one when you pass the mouse over, but it's a minor issue. I wonder if a fully compatible version of Classic Shell will be out soon.

    They might wait until the final 8.1 in a few months.

    Oh wait... Did your laptop originally come with 8?

    I've already got the drivers since my laptop came with 8 pre-installed.

    It wasn't a laptop, it's an All in One Acer 23" Desktop.

    Yes, it did come by default with Windows 8 64bit on it.

    Wow. I just find it strange you had to find drivers once you upgraded to 8.1. Not used to seeing this coming out of basically a service pack or patch.

    Thanks for the info.
