I have the windows 8 customer preview and when ever i have my macbook charging it freezes and i have to force reset. I have done many things to try to fix this issue with no results. I was wondering if people have this issue on the full version of windows 8. I do want get it I just don't want to get this if the issue is still there.


MacBook, Mac OS X (10.7.5), Boot Camp

    Windows 8 Consumer Preview is a version that will expire soon, so you must uninstall it from your Mac now and install Windows 7 if you want to use Windows on Boot Camp

    I know that it's about to expire. That's why I'm trying to figure out if the full version is better. If not then I don't want a broken os. Dose anyone know if windows 8 is not freezing on MacBooks anymore.

    The problem is that there aren't any drivers for the MacBook that are compatible with Windows 8, so you will have to wait. I haven't heard freezing on the final Windows 8 version on MacBooks, so it looks like the final version fixes that problem
