My question is I have a free drive, completely empty, can I install 8 Pro on that drive and still be able to switch between what OS I want to run at start up?
My Asus board has a bios boot menu that I access by pressing the f8 key during the bios post screen. From that menu I have the option to boot from either drive, or even a USB flash drive.
Will I be able to switch from one OS to the other once an OS is booted up evern though they are on separate drives?
A restart is required whenever I want to switch from one OS to the other.
The reason I'm hesitant about installing 8 is that there are no chipset drivers or audio drivers for windows 8 with my current mobo. Which was causing me some problems with the dual boot up with the 8 beta.
My question would be, is it worth the effort to install Windows 8 if the proper drivers aren't available? I would do the necessary hardware upgrades first, if it was my PC.
