This video shows a shut down and subsequent start up in Windows 8 on a Dell Inspiron 6000 with a lovely Pentium M CPU, which to my surprise is rather fast.

*****************************************
Update: Once I was able to find the old Windows 7 drivers for my video card and audio, it worked perfectly. With RTM it runs perfectly smooth and fast.

Here's screen shot from my WEI on RTM: http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/52...

I'll see if I can find a way of linking to the drivers for those looking for them.

*****************************************

Unfortunately, I can't seem to get the whopping 128 MB ATI x300 graphics card to get the proper drivers, despite it working perfectly with Windows 7, so I'm stuck with a non-native screen resolution which is stretching everything out to the 1920x1200 screen. Also, it is causing a less than ideal performance hit without the proper drivers just as it did with Windows 7 before I was able to get the correct drivers to work. Hopefully I can remember what I did to get it work on Windows 7 or maybe a smart person can point me in the correct way ;)

Oh, as you probably can hear quite clearly, I am using the original track pad instead of a mouse, so on top of trying to record with one hand I have to scroll around with the other and click away with the loud buttons.
