Windows 8 on Macbook Air

I had some trouble getting Win 8 started on my 2011Macbook Air. I tried a simple OS upgrade from Win 7, and ended up with a mess: The trackpad wouldn't work, and the screen kept flickering.

What I ended up doing was Refreshing the PC, then running Apple's Boot Camp Windows Support setup.

First: Download this file, unzip it, and run setup.exe

If you're still having problems, I'm afraid you'll have to Refresh the PC. Move your mouse to the bottom right corner and click Settings > Change PC Settings > General

Scroll down to Refresh your PC without affecting your files and click Get started

Finally: If you're not happy with the screen dimming as the lights go down, follow these directions!
