I've done 4 installs. One was an upgrade from Windows 7. I had the strangest problem.
After initial Windows 8 setup, every time I attempted to perform a task that required elevation, the elevation prompt would appear and then disappear. I was cursing, yelling, getting angry etc... Until I discovered that the "elevate prompt" sound file was corrupt! And I was using the stock standard Windows 7 sound theme. Who'd have thought???
Apparently this has been experienced by a few people. Upgrading always brings its share of problems so I guess the odd issue here and there is to be expected.
Oh, and kschlotthauer - I haven't had any issues with the DVD/CD drive going missing. Unlucky maybe?
