Re: loading Windows 8 on E5300 2.60Ghz with Intel DG41RQ

So you have ran window 8 Upgrade Assistant? If yes than these are the issue you will face after installing window 8.
  1. You will have to install third party application for playing DVDs as windows media player wont work in your case.
  2. Windows 8 Sidebar gadgets wont work
  3. Windows 8 Secure Boot feature wont be there for you.
If you can compromise these things than you can go ahead with the installation.
