    Hi everyone,

    I did a search and have been following people experiences and troubles with windows8.

    Though I have yet to find anyone reporting on their experience upgrading their windows 7 bootcamp to window8, without doing a clean install.

    I know there is 10000 arguments for why this is "not a good idea" and also why it really doesn't matter, but that is not why I am asking here :p

    So if anyone have experience please let me (and im sure others) know!!

    P.S. I am lazy but loved win8 pre-rtm builds on my PC, so its very tempting on my macbook pro which is already running win7.

    I have a pretty flawless in-place upgrade experience on my desktop PC. However I'm going to wait until Apple releases Windows 8 specific drivers. I had problems with Windows 8 locking up.

    I can now confirm that I have successfully upgraded, and everything works, audio, trackpad etc no problems. :)
