    by "until now", do you mean that now the auto-rotate & g-sensor works?

    Well, for me bluetooth and the g-sensor* works.
    *sorry my fault, I installed it somehow, but it does not work

    I'm still trying to figure out how you installed the vga drivers, so if it's possible I like to know how. Let me see after the restart if the hardware keys and auto-rotate and wacom works for me.

    /Yeah, wacom works. As you wrote, hardware keys and rotate still doesn't.

    //Have the same problem as RenjaminRies' post #121: Link

    ///This far on Win 8 CP, this won't work on my slate:

    Home Button (only when I hold down)
    Auto Rotate
    Keyboard-Button (volume works though...)
    ControlDeck (can't change screen brightness)
    Display Graphics...
    //I'm not sure about the miniHDMI-input either.
    //at least the microphone and audio output works
    ///Another problem: you can't use standby

    And I'm not sure if I can use the g sensor yet or not.
    Anyway, if you want to install the sensor porperly you can do it with this file G-Sensor

    My device manager: pic
    Would love when someone could upload his win8 graphic drivers...

    @NePheus: it worked. Thanks much!

    So I think there's nothing left I could do about the other issues...

    /It seems that the graphic drivers doesn't fit after all. I still can't choose 1280x1024px.
    //I'm just installing directx9c - hoping the best; dxdiag.exe says DirectX' missing.
    ///nope, still no change. Does it work for someone properly?

    I got some drivers working through this thread only the g-sensor wouldn't work. It will be recognized as a g-sensor but will not be recognized as a accelormeter/g-sensor in windows 8. So I contacted asus. See mail:


    Dear Asus,

    I am running Windows 8 consumer preview on my Asus ep121. The tablet is really
    getting up to his full potential running Windows 8. The only missing thing is the g-
    sensor Driver.

    Code:
    The g-sensor driver can be installed and will be listed under Device Manager in 
    Windows. But the driver is not a real windows 8 accelerometer/g-sensor driver so it 
    won't be recognized as a g-sensor by metro applications. 
    
    For example the code from the Windows 8 Accelerometer sensor sample won't work 
    on the slate with the current drivers 
    (http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsapps/Accelerometer-Sensor-Sample-
    22982671).
    
    Could you give some insight in the process of this driver or is it not going to be 
    supported by Asus?
    
    Thanks,
    
    Automaticoo

    Thank you for your email.
    
    We do not provide support for Windows 8 on this model.
    Because of this we cannot provide you with Windows 8 drivers for this model.
    
    Also note that we only provide support for the original operating system.
    If you have problems running any other operating system then we can only advise you to set the system back to default.
    
    Ik hoop u hierbij voldoende te hebben geinformeerd.
    I hope to have informed you enough.
    
    Vriendelijke groet/ Kind regards,
    
    Asus TSD.

    Yes I did download and installed it. It works fine but the sensor won't be recognized as a Windows 8 Accelorometer sensor. So it won't work with the new Metro Sensor api's unfortunately.

    Can you please link to the true Wacom Drivers? The link above states "Go to Post 219".

    Or how do I find that post? I searched for 219 and couldn't find it so can some one just post the direct link?

    Thanks!
