    While playing audio, using either WMP or MPC, the system may hang, with a reboot the only option. This can occur after just minutes, or hours.

    It's then evident that the NTFS is corrupt on both the SATA drive (Win 8) and an SSD drive (W7) - all partitions. CHKDSK /f fires up.

    Otherwise the O/S runs as well as one might expect for a beta. Event viewer gives no clue to the problem.

    The processor is a capable 2600K, latest drivers. W7, using exactly the same soft/hardware is problem free.

    Just some speculation here, but we've seen issues with SSD's (in Win7). that have either outdated firmware and/or outdated storage controller drivers. I'd have to wonder if this is the case with the default installation of Win8 (outdated storage drivers).

    Here's a copy of my suggestions for SSD's on Win7. Please note the discussion about storage controller drivers and the issues with some of them:
    Another option (if you're an MSDN/TechNet subscriber) is to install the RTM version when it's released to subscribers in the very near future. I'd expect that the driver packages for Win8 would have been updated by that point in time.
