Title: Anyone tried Windows 8 32-bit?
Post by: jevs on January 28, 2013, 09:28:11 PM
I am getting ready to build a new computer for my machine. I did purchase Win 7 32 bit for it.

I have 32 bit Windows 8 I could try first though, just as an experiment.

I am just wondering if anyone already tried it and confirmed it will not work. I don't want to waste my time if it for sure won't work, but it would be free (other than time), for me to try it before I load up Win 7 on there.

Any thoughts?
It would save me some money if it worked (I could return or resell my Win 7)

My machine is just a hobby toy, so I don't need it up and running right away for production or anything. I could try Win 8 and see what happens if it is worthwhile for anyone to know if it works??

I am using parallel ports (no motion controller).
