There seems to be some issue with this newer Boot Camp 5 and Windows 8 becuase of the Intel HD graphics in the processor. I have a maxed out Intel iMac 27" Mid-2011 with Intel Core i7 and AMD Radeon 6970M 2GB.

 

When Windows 8 Pro is first installed with Boot Camp 5 USB flash drive everything seems fine. The Intel HD graphics are detected and so is the AMD Radeon. But if the machine is put to sleep the computer resumes and has a BSOD. The reason is igdkmd64.sys.

 

I think the only way I know of to solve this is to disable the Intel HD graphics in Device Manager before the machine begins crashing. On "first" boot the Intel HD graphics are listed in device manager. Later depending on restart, sleep, hibernate, the Intel HD graphics are listed under hidden devices in Device Manager.

 

IS ANYONE ELSE EXPERIENCING THIS?

 

DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE A SOLUTION BESIDES THIS?
