Windows 8 was a seamless upgrade regarding hardware. The only issues I encountered were related to some software development programs I had installed on Windows 7. Apache Http, Apache Tomcat, and MySQL Server had to be reinstalled to work properly in Windows 8. The previous programs had displayed as installed programs but none of the three were available under “Services”. After reinstalling the software everything worked just fine.
