    Dual booting Windows 7 and 8 on Asus Transformer Book Trio TX201LA

    Hi all

    Have any of you tried to get the Asus Transformer Book Trio TX201LA working with Windows 7? I have a requirement to be able to run windows 7 to comply with corporate standards and have corporate security software installed on the device. I have setup dual boot machines before and I know the pain of locating drivers for unsupported OS's so I though I'd ask if any of you have attempted this on the TX201LA?

    Thanks

    I have not tried, but I worry about VGA drivers. In the past we have had issues with waking from sleep due to BIOS and VGA drivers. Can you not use VMware, or any other virtualization software, to run windows 7 and remain in compliance with the company?

    Hi, Thanks for the reply

    Unfortunately I can't use the virtualization route as the IT department get nervous when they see that. It has to be natively installed. I guess I will just have to get one and have a go at installing Windows 7 and seeing what happens.

    I am confident you can use it with Windows 7, but you may have to shut it down after switching to Android while booted in 7. Obviously there will be no issues switching while booted into 8. Everything else shoul work with relative ease as the switching is the only thing that really ever had a problem.

    Keep us posted.

    Well, it arrived today and it's a great looking bit of kit. I've decided to upgrade to SSD so have to wait for that to arrive before I start building out the dual boot hard drive...
