    I tried installing windows 8, but the network drivers don't work. I can't seem to connect to a wireless network. Anyone else experience this or figure out a solution?

    You can install the Windows 7 drivers if you boot Windows 8 into "Advanced Startup" and then "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement". Install the drivers then you can boot back into into the regular, safer, signature-enforcing mode.

    Win8 has a requirement where the driver packages need to be code signed, and this mode allows you to get past that requirement. It's not that the drivers are hugely different, Win8 isn't that much different than Win7 at it's core, but the signed driver requirement is a new thing.
