    Go to the device properties of your video card and copy/paste your "hardware id"

    So you go into 8, go to the folder C:/NVIDIA/.../Display.Driver
    Open nvam.inf
    And modify lines that begins by %NVIDIA_DEV.0648.01% with this at the end : PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0648&SUBSYS_900F1043

    Use DriverMax or other driver backup utilities, backup all drivers from win7 side, then restore drivers on the win8 side...
