I installed Windows 8 RTM x64 last night and I cant get eyefinity working on my dual screens. I was just wondering has anyone else run into this problem and if so did you overcome it and how?
When I install CCC windows 8 RP software the eyefinity option doesn't even come up.
Windows 7 has reached the RTM milestone:
The Windows 8 RTM has RTM'd. That means manufacturers have it, as well as some employees of those manufacturers on their workstations. Windows activation servers are online and the MAK version can be activated. TechNet/MSDN are not expected to get it until 8/15, but we already have run into contacts who have it legitimately from at least one large corporation. Unlike previous versions of Windows, including Windows 7, the software license activation cannot be run without a genuine product license key and cannot be re-armed at all. It is quite possible that this individual has the RTM and we will not operate with a presumption of guilt on part of the operator at this time.
Takedown requests between now and 8/15/2012?
This matter can and will change if we receive instructions or requests from Microsoft to take certain content down. I will remind you that we have a direct line of contact to them and this is unlikely to happen, as it is now a matter of days, and not even weeks, before this version becomes widespread.
Presumed innocence and not guilt policy until official retail release:
Those who are using a RTM version should be presumed to have a legitimate copy of the release-to-manufacturer version of the operating system. Including additional information, such as what edition of Windows 8 is being used, may be helpful in troubleshooting the problem.
What if you knew some information that other people didn't have?
In fact, I can confirm to you that the information listed here is actually 100% accurate as to how the RTM has been released to manufacturers in North America, specifically in terms of file size, file name, SHA-1, and MD5 checksums. This has been made possible by a confidential source that has reported this information to us, who I have known since the 1990s, and who is working with copies of the software on behalf of a major corporation. However, no one here on this site speaks directly for Microsoft Corporation, or would recommend downloading a copy that is not supplied through legitimate channels. For example, if the below tablature is somehow deemed to be infringing and requested removed under DMCA by Microsoft Corporation, we would gladly do so.

We know files have leaked, we will not leak them here, and there is nothing Windows 8 Forums can do about it:
I also add, for the benefit of the doubt, that because we know files have leaked, if I have a confidential source that indicates information to me that I know to be willfully true or accurate, I am therefor obligated, solely operating as an administrator of this website, to help individuals avoid downloading illegitimate content. The SHA1 and MD5 hashes are correct, as well as the file size and versioning. Only Microsoft can provide accurate legitimacy to online leaks, but we cannot ignore, at this time, that such leaks exist. With that being said, we must proceed with the fact that such RTM leaks do exist, and try to ensure that visitors and users avoid illegitimate versions of the RTM software. It should be clarified that this is a near-impossible task until official RTM SHA-1 and/or MD5 checksum data is released by Microsoft and the RTM made available on TechNet and MSDN under the special terms of the End User License Agreements (EULAs) located there. It is actually illegal to operate or obtain a license for a Microsoft product or operating system without adheering to the End User License Agreement for the software and, in doing so, owning a OEM, Retail, Volume, or other miscellaneous license for use. Visitors and members are urged to utilize their utmost disgression and common sense and are urged not to download any potentially illegitimate copy of Microsoft Windows for any purpose. We simply cannot presume guilt on part of a party for not supplying complete information.
We also, obviously, demand, that you never disclose your license key or other pertinent confidential privileged information to any third party using this service. Discussing any ways to bypass activation, discussing how to activate an illegally downloaded copy, and any software piracy discussion is banned under our Terms of Service. This document governs how you can interact with our services.
This has nothing to do with us being the morals Forum. It has everything to do with MS monitoring Forums such as this. If we in this Forum do anything to encourage, or do not do enough to discourage piracy of MS S/W, they we could have problems with MS.
My whole point here is that, based on the list of release dates Mike so eloquently pointed out, unless you are indeed an employee of one of the OEM's who have received an advanced copy of Win 8 RTM, based on those release dates, your copy of Win 8 RTM is suspect.
We have to be very careful answering questions that could be dealing with pirated software!
