Optiplex 960 and Windows 8

  • Has anyone have success on installing Windows 8 on an Optiplex 960 yet, it keeps failing on setup, with what I am guessing is a hardware driver issue. I know it is not a video issue since I have the same Quadra NV420 in my T1600. Any ideas?

    Here is the original configuration. \

  • That invoice list is useless. It would be better just to say what model and hardware you have and how you are trying to install win 8. What did the Upgrade Assistant report? That will tell you if you can install win 8 and if you need to upgrade anything. It also will also let you know which version of win 8 you need.
