I wanted to know -due to a client's requirement- if the support for Windows 8 means that it's also backwards compatible to Windows 7.
I haven't tried Windows 8 yet. And I would like to know if the drivers both systems use, are the same. -because of the apparent similarities between them-. Maximum compatibility is needed because I need to buy an All In One PC. (example: Compaq 18-3004LA).
My client wants to acquire this specific model, and while I've been able to find some of the hardware that's in it, to be compatible with Windows 7, not every part is specified to detail, And I wondered if Windows 7 and 8 had driver inter-compatibility and the OS could be changed without any toll on operability.
I'm aware that this depends entirely on the hardware, but my question is a bit broader than to ask for this specific model, It's to know if the drivers that both OS's use, could be the same without any problem whatsoever.
Thanks in advance.
