If your computer is running Windows 7 with the correct drivers then it should be able to handle Windows 8. You can check by downloading & running the upgrade assistant available from here; http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/...

I had tried after using the upgrade assistant. It had shown that almost everything was okay except for a few programs so started an upgrade. Everything possible went wrong graphic, and other hardware. I ended up doing a clean install of Windows 8 Pro 64bit and then installing Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit to a bootable VHD. This worked very good.
