Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 support

Recommended Posts

I loaded Windows 8 developer edition on my PC, but as soon as I start Aida (v1.85.1600) the pc hangs. I have to hard reset it. I also tried compatibility mode, but it does the same.

Is there a fix for this?

Thanks.

We've fixed the ACPI layer of AIDA64 to suit Windows 8. Please upgrade to the latest beta version of AIDA64 Extreme Edition available at:

http://www.aida64.com/downloads/aida64extremebuild1630wl5rjn9gwczip

After upgrading to this new version, make sure to restart Windows to finalize the upgrade.

Let me know how it works.

Thanks,

Fiery

Thanks :( Can you see at which point (while loading up) does AIDA64 freeze? Maybe while scanning PCI devices? Or while enumerating RAID devices?

Instant when loading.

I cann't see what, PCI or RAID (btw I don't have RAID).

Must press "Reset" button or "Off" PSU to restart again in Safe Mode, to clear start AIDA at win start up.

Btw,

NetUpdate working.

Thank you. Is your SATA controller working in AHCI mode currently? Did you install a ForceWare driver?

BTW, in a hope that we can replicate this issue, we've just tried to install Win8 on a Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3-iSSD system. The Win8 installer failed with a new-style BSoD stating "You can search for the error online: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED". This pre-beta Windows Developer Preview thing looks like it has a long way to mature ;) We'll try to install it on another LGA1155 system.

I downloaded the latest version, now it loads and freezes at "measuring CPU speed".

I'm using a HP Core i5 Laptop, 6GB Ram, 500GB harddrive.

Thanks.

I find it hard to believe that those users attracted to Win 8 would have use for a program like AIDA64 !!!! :wub:

let the flames begin

With the Metro UI it's definitely something you have to get used to :) But if you deactivate that nonsense, then it looks and feels much like Windows 7. Except that it doesn't seem to be stable yet. Which is normal, since Win8 in its current state is not even beta yet...

Thank you. That issue will be fixed in the next AIDA64 beta due tomorrow.

Here's a new AIDA64 beta that fixes the slowdowns and lockups on Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processors under Windows 8:

After upgrading to this new version, make sure to restart Windows to finalize the upgrade.

Let us know how it works on your system ;)

Thank you for the feedback. Please feel free to report any sort of issues you experience under Windows 8 while using AIDA64. We'll keep on improving compatibility in the upcoming beta releases.

1639 (with Vista Sidebar) freeze immediately. :(

Does it lock up if you launch AIDA64 without Sidebar support enabled? If that's the case, then please check if it locks up when you go to the Computer / Sensor page.

BTW, which driver do you use for the GTS450? Did you install a Win7 ForceWare?

Thanks,

Fiery
