But if i get it right- Win8 preview links are gone, you need to buy your copy,
Or find some illegal source. Which is not to be discussed here.
To make things short, I managed to make WiFi work on my dear ol' Shift!
I don't really know how I did it: after a fresh installation of an official academic msdn final copy of Win 8 Pro, and using the method posted here above, I could not manage to update the driver in the device manager (it kept mentioning something like it couldn't find the UI something...). So I decided to restore Win8 to a previous state and it took me back to where I was soon after my fresh installation (HTC drivers were installed). Then I copied the files needed in the system32 directory and so on, but still wasn't working. So I thought I should take a look at what's included in the directories found within the original HTC Marvell driver file. The driver contains a TOOLKITS dir. I decided to give a try and install everything there with the Vista SP2 compatibility trick (RegforHotfix.exe, ECTKit.exe, vcpj_TSinstall.exe). I don't remember in what order.I then tried updating the driver from within the device manager, and this time it seemed to work! But even after a reboot, there was still something not working, but at list I had the wifi icon in the task bar appearing. During my search for a newest driver for the wifi card, I downloaded I driver that seems more recent than all the other ones I could find (Marvell SD8686 220.127.116.11). so I tried this last one, and taa daa! There I am with wifi perfectly working!
If I manage to attach a zip of the driver to my post, you can try if it works for you too.
I think Win8 is what we need on our Shifts, although it sometimes lags a lot, like now with xda on the opera browser... But the finger interface (calibrate it in the control panel / Tablet settings for the angles and boarders issue) is great.
I installed the 2GB ram module and a 120GB msata OCZ nocti ssd with a zif adapter board (ebay) and it now boots very fast too! This is a real "ultra"book.
