comment VirtualBox fullscreen mode problem
@Jacob: this was probably the ticket: virtualbox.org/ticket/6089 , what solved it for me was disabling 3D acceleration in the VM settings

comment Low SSD performance
Yeah, very sure, AHCI is enabled. iaStorA afauk is an AHCIdriver from intel. I am considering swapping the normal hdd with the sdd ports and doing a secure erase.

comment Low SSD performance
@StefanSeidel: yes, I used quick format and NTFS, I think the LBA written is around 0.26 TB. info about sata controller j.mp/UEZeJB If I would boot a linux distro from USB it should work close to maximum efficiency without tweaks? What do I need to type in linux to see what sata mode is the ssd using?

comment Is it possible to buy Windows 8 online as a digital download?
@Moab: I'll accept your solution as correct until we get an update. But I couldn't find Windows 7 digital edition either, so, probably there won't be any digital edition.

comment How can I make Windows Task Manager keep it's position and size upon reopening?
Yeah, I got what you said the first time, but you didn't state your assumption before. Anyway, I can't test it now since the problem was fixed after restarting. :) Thanks for your help anyway!

comment Is it possible to buy Windows 8 online as a digital download?
@Mufasa: What I meant to say is that it doesn't seem to be allowed to upgrade from Release Preview to RTM without having bought a previous license of XP, Vista or 7. I am not doubting that it is possible, just that it is legal.

@Mufasa: It might be possible but I don't think it is allowed. Read this question, it is interesting: superuser.com/q/439898/90320

comment Is it possible to buy Windows 8 online as a digital download?
@Mufasa: From what I know it has to be a licensed XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 to be able to upgrade. I also read on many sites that you can upgrade from Windows 8 Release Preview but only if you have a license of one of the above. I run the tool on Windows 8 RP and it worked.
