    DG35EC and Windows 8 Problem


      I have a DG35EC mother board with BIOS upgraded (yesterday) to
      ECG3510M.86A.0118.2009.1421. My cpu is Intel Core2 Duo E7500 at 2.93GHz. I

      have 4G of RAM installed. Everything works great under Windows XP Pro with

      SP3. All of my network, audio, and video is comming from the board directly.

      I have nothing additional plugged into the board.


      I want to upgrade to Windows 8. When I run Microsoft's Upgrade Advisor, I get

      the message "Platform is not supported."


      Someplace (I'm sorry I don't remember where) I read that the BIOS must be a

      2010, not a 2009, BIOS. Is there such a BIOS for this mother board? If not,

      are there plans by Intel to upgrade the BIOS to 2010?


      I also have a second PC at home with the DG41KR mother board, BIOS is

      KRG4110H.86A.0032.2010.0628.1643. I was running XP Pro with SP3, upgraded it

      to Win 8 then updated it to Windows 8.1. Everything is working great. Note the 2010 BIOS.


      Intel: would you please (pretty please) update the DG35EC BIOS to a 2010 or

      higher version. Thank you.

      If anyone knows of work-arounds for the DG35EC, I would certainly like to

      know about it.

      Thank you.
