I want to install windows 8 on my Macbook pro and I don't know if it works well.

 

Are there any problems due to the drivers between Apple and Microsoft ?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Windows 8 with Bootcamp is not supported. No Windows 8 Bootcamp drivers.

     

    You can install Windows 8 using a virtual machine like Parallels or Fusion.

    for me on my 2010 imac 22" everything

    well everything I use anyway

     

    thats what is build into the imac in terms of audio, wifi and usb and display port in terms of 2ed display

    and magic trackpad (only for normal nagivating and 2 finger scroll though)

     

    and the I dont use the mac keyboard I use a wireless ms nautral keyboard both in osx and win8

     

    and then a razer mouse which is both bluetooth and usb bluetooth don't work with windows though but nor did it before I upgraded from win7 ultimate 64bit

     

    ever now and again windows crash at bootup but never happed 2 times in a row

     

    with the amd gpu driver win update suggested it would crash alot at bootup

     

    once inside windows I havent had issues

     

    some games crash when I start them most likely because of the old win7 amd driver in my case

    rage and space marine

     

    other games like skyrim, dead island and diablo3 and sc2 work fine

     

    plan on updating the apple drivers once they are released to see if that fixes the few issues I have
