    Of course you can't as it's not compatible. Somebody mentioned that NVIDIA has a beta driver that works with Win8 so google a bit maybe you'll find something.

    Windows 8 Driver Issues

    have been trying the Nvidia beta driver no joy with that either it is only in 64bit
    not the end of the world just means no aero
    this was never gonna be an amazing build but it is a start
    do we really want to go back to the way it was with 7 where there was a new build every other day
    one every couple of weeks up to the proper beta will do

    Since it's still 6.1 all the Windows 7 drivers should work dude.

    Most drives shoud work ok, although there will be some driver model changes which probably haven't been included yet. First at least is the driver model, which will be updated again. In this case, Windows 7 drivers would still work, much like Vista display drivers on Windows 7, but without the specific LDDM 1.2? support you won't be able to make use of all the features to their full potential (much like using Vista LDDM 1.0 drivers on Windows 7 LDDM 1.1 driver model).

    I tried installing my intel HD gpu drivers (h55 i5 chipset) and the installer wouldn't run no matter what compatibility setting. I set the date to 'realtime' ran windows update and got everything from there, then reset the date to 10/23/10 and all is well.

    Hello fellas,

    noticed better compatibility than Win 7; i'll better explain:
    With 7 and 7 SP1 , tried bith of them wit a new installation, there was no way to install drivers of my Intel 915GM(no WDDM drivers...)nor in every compatibility mode. Yesterday night i've installed the same driver on M1 build(in xp SP2 comp. mode and it works perfectly with no errors), of course with no aero.
    With seven it pops errors and can change nothing on my grapics card...

    SO there are a improvements that we are going to discover togheter, :cool:

    In compatibility mode window you can chose Windows 7 and Windows 7 SP1 so must be new drivers release for win8 in the future, otherwise makes no sense implementing that voices....:D

    Windows 8 Driver Issues

    Guys, I have a very bad problem. I installed 7955 build, but my graphics drivers don't work on it. I try to install the 2 drivers which worked before for me, because the newer versions of ATI Catalyst driver doesn't work for me. My laptop is Asus F5R - graphics card is ATI RADEON XPRESS 1100. Can someone help me with giving me a link for working driver. I tried 11-3_vista32_win7_32_dd_ccc_ocl.exe, 10-2_legacy_vista32-64_dd_ccc.exe and 8-12_vista32_dd_72275.exe.They are installing but after finishing installation and restarting my PC nothing happens.When I try to install the only 2 working before for me drivers - VGA_VISTA_070316 and VGA_Vista32_64_070209 it says me "Failed to find installation components". :(( Please guys, help me!

    Edit: One guy told me what to do-to install the updates from MS and it's working ^^ You can delete this topic! ;)

    Go to ATI driver download link(google), download the win xp driver for your card, then install it using the win xp compatibility mode(program - program work for previous windows).
