I've been using windows 8 with FD for about a month seems to work well............. but yesterday I installed outpost 8 which hosed windows so I tried to flip snapshots GMAL error. Simple I thought try another snapshot no joy. Not to worry simply restore my last image - Shadow protect failed to restore (never happens) had to install an older image and then import the snapshot (not five minutesany more) To try things out a bit I copied the SSD to a spare SATA disk and tried to boot windows 8 - it failed saying that it was a different disk. Copied the image to the ssd boots fines? I'm not sure if turning off hybrid boot (fast startup) would be a good idea for compatibility? What have others experienced?
