I purchased the Online Digital Upgrade last night from Windows 7 Ultimate to Win 8 Pro. The only incompatible program was Zonealarm Antivirus which was uninstalled as part of the upgrade.
So far, on navigating through my desktop, Windows 8 advises of a problem, briefly displays a search suggestion and then shuts down. From what I have seen the error is driver related and is different each time.
This has happened @ 8 times so far and on several I have agreed to send the info to microsoft.
This is really disappointing and frustrating! I do not want to keep using this if this keeps happening.
I'm getting the same thing. I upgraded from Windows 7 pro to Windows 8 pro last night from Microsoft Online digital store. The only incompatible program I had was Sound Forge 10. I uninstalled it. Since the upgrade, I have no sound. Went to Creative to download the new driver. But the download never completes because Windows 8 keeps restarting. I can't tell what the issue is. Sends a memory dump to Microsoft but I don't know where to look for the event logs to see what the issue is. Please let me know if a solution.
i am facing the same issue with Windows 8 on my dell laptop inspiron N5010.
attempted execute of no execute memory
these are the two messages which keep coming up on the BSOD screen which pops within 30 seconds of Windows coming up!!!
