I have the TouchSmart IQ505. Had Widows 7 and upgraded to Windows 8. Everything seem to be running fine. My HP Printer works, all my programs installed and work fine.
The only situation I am having is when I try to boot into the setup or diagnose mode using the Funtion keys (F8, F10 ect) after starting up. It just continues into Windows.

It boots to the HP Page with function options. After your suggestion, ESC works now and goes to boot menu, F10 works, F9 diagnostics works, however, F8 and F11 recover still not working. Is this a bios thing?

Possibly the reason F11 recovery does not work is the recovery partition is gone. Once the computer is up and running does the Windows 8 see the recovery paprtition? The F8 key is (in previous Windows versions) for entering "safe mode", Windows 8 does not use that function, see here: http://www.techspot.com/news/48718-windows-8-removes-need-for-f8-key-advanced-boot-menu-redesigned.h...
