    Hello!,
    I see that, nobody do this already, so I start this:
    This thread is to make a compatibility hardware list, when we posts our hardware (entire, with models and brands please), and also, if is needed to do a special thing before it works, this will make a lot of help to all the new users that have doubts about if his machine will work.

    I start, I will add my specs directly to the list of the next post.

    Please help, telling us your entire specs, being detailed and telling if work natively, or need something else to work.

    Greetings.

    In Reality, such list is it really needed?

    I would say no. Reason is easy, even with very old hardware, let say a 12 year old Asus MB just works very well with no driver problems. Same applies for old SCSI stuff: CD Writer, HDD's, Scanner (Epson 1200 Professional), Fujistu MO Drives (SCSI and IDE) and and and. Even some which were not working wit Windows 7 like a portable NEC USB Scanner for Win98, didn't worked in XP, Vista and Win7, works in Windows 8!

    Such list would be good if there a lot hardware installation problems but I really doubt that!

    In that regard, I would suggest not to make a list of Hardware which IS working, make on of Hardware which IS NOT working.

    Just my 2 Satang's (Thai Cent)!

    List updated.

    Yes it is neccesary, for example, some old hardware, may need tweaks, special tasks to made it works, for example, my IDT audio card needs changing some content of the drivers files, other need some special drivers such as VueScan.
    Is neccesary.

    As I wrote, a list of Problem Hardware would be good instead of an list for ALL Hardware. Or make 2 different List's: one for working Hardware and one for Problem Hardware! Much more useful and even easy for to do an search!

    Microsoft SideWinder Force Feedback Wheel USB

    works fine, built in drivers are automatically installed and the wheel works properly,
    compared to Windows 98SE (newest OS officially supported...) you don't have the advanced control panel for the wheel, with profiles and custom pedal, buttons and FFB settings, but default settings on Win8 are pretty good...

    List updated.
    I succesfully installed Windows 8 in a Compaq CQ1, so maybe I can add to the list "OEM PC's".

    It is 3 months since i sold my old pc and i only had CP on it but it is the same for RTM i guess. So i will add it here.

    Gigabyte EX58-UD5 - Everything works, don't even need to install any drivers but maybe is better to install for better performance :)

    Exactly what I was thinking about. We're talking about Windows, not some obscure bare-bones OS developed by the kid from around the block.

    If this was a Hackintosh forum, having a compatibility list would be priority number one, but I don't think you'll find more than 2-3 misbehaving drivers here and there.
