    I updated on new Ndivia driver, but it still frezze. I think bootcamp is real problem.

    Install/enable Hyper-V and you will be freeze free (very likely at least)

     

    Go to START

    Right click and go to ALL APPS in the lower right corner

    Open CONTROL PANEL

    Click on PROGRAMS AND FEATURES

    On the left, click on TURN WINDOWS FEATURES ON OR OFF

    Choose HYPER-V (I chose everything)

     

    REBOOT

     

    Enjoy Windows 8, now freeze free!

    Ok, I was forced to go back to Windows 7.  Nothing works. I would try the Hyper-V but im just so frustrated with WIndows 8, it was so unusable for me. 

     

    I am willing to try it again if I can get the trackpad to work.  IThe trackpad works perfectly if I dont choose the keep all settings, apps and files option but if I chose it, the trackpad is dead.  I even delete the drivers from device manager and then go to bootcamp drivers and only choosing the trackpad drivers.

     

    I want to use WIndows 8 but I want to use my apps and not have to start all over again from scratch.  I have over 160 apps so reinstalling them will suck. ANyone have any advice?

  • clechner77 Level 1 (0 points)

    I'm fairly certain that Hyper-V is going to fix your freezing but the trackpad is a little more perplexing.  I always start from scratch as I want everything to be as fresh as possible giving me far less room for old drivers or incompatabilities or something left over.  I work in IT and I haven't "upgraded" anyone in years without starting from scratch.  Just my take on it but I really do understand why you would rather upgrade.  With 160 apps that's quite an undertaking to be sure.

    I don't want to jinx it, but so far, this is working.  I installed Hyper-V last night and haven't had it freeze since.  If I can get all the way through the day today, I'm calling this a success.

     

    Thanks for the tip on this.

  • clechner77 Level 1 (0 points)

    It really does work and is already fixed on internal builds, according to Microsoft.  I can't believe how fast Windows 8 is.... don't want to go back to anything else!  ( I swear I don't work for M$).

  • ryanfrompearland Level 1 (0 points)

    Hah.  I agree with you on the speed.  Until this fix, I was considering switching back to Win7 for my work build, but now that it's stable, I'm definitely sticking with Win8RP.  It took a bit of getting used to, but the performance is totally worth it.  Now that I'm accustomed to the start menu being gone, I actually find that I'm accessing things more quickly using the new interface as well.

    @clechner77: Frezzing still exist. I'm sure that, we need new bootcamp driver which support to Windows 8. We only wait to Apple. If you have any other solution for frezzing problem, please advise us. Thanks.

    Here is another suggestion from an expert on Windows internals that many are saying helps freezing issues in Windows 8: http://www.withinwindows.com/2012/06/28/workaround-for-windows-8-freezing-issues /

     

    I haven't tried it myself as I am evaluating whether the Hyper-V install works for me (2 days strong so far!). I will try it soon though.

  • anthonyfromkirkland Level 1 (0 points)

    Techsage that seems to work for me so now if I can just get the trackpad to work.  It wont work at all. I did an upgrade instead of a fresh install. 

  • Kman321 Level 1 (0 points)

    I can also confirm that techSage's solution works! Thanks!

     

    For you guys having trouble with the trackpad, just install the boot camp drivers for Windows 7 in compatibility mode and they will work perfectly!

  • ju hyung Level 1 (0 points)

    This issue is happened by 320M nvidia driver.

    All Macs using 320M graphics card cannot run Windows 8 stably.

     

    I've tried all existing 320M driver on Windows 8 and none was working correctly.

     

    Now, I've tried Windows 8 RTM. And it still hasn't fixed.

     

    This is a SERIOUS ISSUE and NVIDIA should make a fix ASAP!

  • LupahFiasco Level 1 (0 points)

    DId you try the solution techsage gave? I also have 320M graphics card, but just uninstalled W8, and now cant try it

  • ju hyung Level 1 (0 points)

    Well, I'd still blame NVIDIA for this mess but I'll try that solution. Never heard of it :D

    I'll let you know the results.

  • LupahFiasco Level 1 (0 points)

    Please let me know. I'll be waiting for your reply, cause this freezing is making me crazy!
