I installed Window 8 RTM build 9200 on my 2012 MBP with native EFI booting, and had plenty of problems (including BSODs) when driver security verification (can’t remember the exact wording) was on. I disabled it and Windows seemed stable. I would still get a kernel security failure crash at times. The audio bus didn’t work either. It was unreliable. Windows wouldn’t boot every time I needed it. After some poking around, I found out that a faulty driver was causing Windows 8 to crash. Booting in safe mode alleviated my problems. However, Windows isn’t very functional in a permanent safe mode. With the next semester approaching, Windows needed to be reinstalled in a BIOS configuration.

The first problem was GPT (GUID Partition Table- it organizes the partitions on a disk). When installed for EFI, Windows 8 requires GPT. Since the Mac OS transitioned to X86, it has required GPT…

The Critical Point

When I think of Internet Explorer, I still think of the huge security breach with Internet Explorer 6 a few years back. After that, I immediately switched to Mozilla Firefox and then switched to Google Chrome the moment it came out. Apparently, if you mess up once, you lose my business (I never used any Bausch & Lomb ReNu contact solution again after the company discovered one of the ingredients may lead to an eye infection and issued a recall).

I snickered when I heard people still used Internet Explorer as it seemed so old-fashioned, especially when we have Google Chrome that has sleeker look, great security, useful ad-ons, custom themes, and works extremely fast.
