Default I Successfully Installed Windows 8

I successfully installed Windows 8 on my DELL Inspiron 545 Slimline!
Screw you, DELL support! I read that DELL 545 is not on the approved list of Windows 8.

Glad you got it working.

Often times the reason a device is not on the "approved" list has nothing to do with whether it will work or not, it's mostly a matter of whether they have tested it or not to the point where they are willing to say it's approved.

Well, there's this stupid watermark that won't go away no matter what I do.
1. Tried using CMD
2. Tried Microsoft Support (Even the CORRECT ANSWERS don't help me)
3. It went away when explorer.exe crashed.

I'd say congratulations but giving that it is Windows 8 i'd be more inclined to say commiserations. . . . .
