I have installed Windows 8 WMC Pro 64 bit and, by default, Windows 8 installed all the drivers that come with the OS. I built my home PC three years ago (Intel DG43GT Mobo and Pentium Dual Core E5300 CPU, 6 GB RAM (DDR2, double channel), 500 GB Seagate HDD). Some motherboard drivers are outdated.

Has anyone used the drivers for Windows 7 in Windows 8 without problem?

DG43GT motherboard is discontinued, so very likely Intel will not update the drivers. Any recommendations on this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Windows 7 drivers should work just fine in Windows 8 with a few exceptions, of course.
