Well, I recently upgraded my G74SX-NH71 to Win8 Pro, bought a copy of StartIsBack (www.startisback.com/#home-tab) and I personally like it so far. The only drivers I had to load was the one for the SD Card Reader, used the Win7 64-bit one and it wored fine, also used the HotKey drivers for the backlit keyboard for Win7, that works fine also so far. All other drivers were more recent versions that came on the Win8Pro DVD. I would recommend d/l the latest Nvidia drivers though.
