Windows 7, hahaha
Yeah good point, I should probably try and stick it out for a bit longer.
Haha, the thought did cross my mind, but I don't think I can boot from a M.2 PCIe SSD with Windows 7.
Edit: Looks like I'm wrong on the PCIe boot drive front, so Windows 7 may be an option.
Unlike most start menu replacements, it is not a program that puts an overlay on top of the taskbar. It's a dll that integrates into explorer (but it doesn't modify any system files).
Whenever I install Windows 8/8.1 or Server 2012/R2, I always use:
Aero Glass by bigmuscle
Some themes, such as Aero RP/CP theme, Snowy8
*note bigmuscle's Aero Glass can use a custom theme atlas png which replaces the current theme's one. But it tends to conflict with a lot of custom themes. So you'll want to disable the theme atlas in Aero Glass if you want to use custom themes.
I have had nothing but problems with windows 8.1 this past week after a few months using it
Reformatted pc> installed windows> install drivers the installation hangs
Drivers are from asus site,
Smartscreen popup i cant stand, click run anyway it still wont run
Rebuiling pc this week so downloading a W7 Pro iso
Are your hardware a bit older or latest hardware? I'm wondering if it's due to older hardware not playing nice with win8.
Hardware was only 6 months old.
CPU 4690k>Mobo asus maximus ranger
But i have sold all that and got the Maximus HERO 4790k and 780ti
Was time for a change of gear anyway
