Ok! So in safe mode I uninstalled all Windows 7 drivers that I was using, ran Ccleaner and wiped registry entries for deleted programs and finally installed the new Windows 8 drivers. Everything seems to be running very well.

The Bluetooth driver gave me a BSOD during installation. And I didn't notice any USB 3.0 drivers. I will try and remove all of the previous drivers now, refresh my win 8 run the CCleaner and install the new ones. I hope this will fix everything.

P.S. ASUS Wireless Control cannot install!
P.S. P.S. The Fn keys do not show the pictures on the screen anymore!

you don't need usb drivers with Windows 8

Without any troubles, you can simply re-used the Win 7 Wireless Control util. and for Bluetooth, Windows updated mine (via windows update) to a correct one. So no need to break the head over it. As you mentioned, current ATK package doesn't seems quiet nice with the 'Fn' key associate images. So I re-used Win7 Package just as a personal preference 😉

So far so good...

Ok, today I installed Bluetooth and without any problem. Idk what happened yesterday :confused:
I used Wireless Console from the Win7 drivers and it works flawlessly.
And the Fn keys, I am willing to look the other way this time. I don't really care that much about the stupid pictures.
But still no USB 3.0 drivers!!! I don't like that 😞

USB3.0 drivers should be built in with Windows 8.
