Windows 8 Upgrade Clean Installs FINE on a pair of SSDs running in Raid 0 plus can Dual Boot using Bios.
ALL Machine Devices Working Properly and Fast.
Setup time is about 12 hours if you have the correct tools and know what you're doing.
Can even boot straight into old desktop by passing Metro altogether if you want to.
Not going to use Windows 7 any longer and just keep an old image around.
