Re: Windows 8 fix some issue

this probably means that Windows 8 uses less CPU and/or GPU resources than Windows 7.

Win 8 Dual boot

Can anyone give me the instructions to dual boot windows 8 on Z570? It asks for GPT partion style. I converted my disk to GPT only to find that Win 7 doesn't install the way it does in MBR styled partition. Any help is much appreciated.
