Can my Netbook (lenovo S110) support Windows 8? The apps won't open

can my netbook (lenovo S110) support windows 8?
i installed windows 8 release preview build 8400 in my netbook

all the thing seems good but just the apps cannot be opened
it stated my resolution issue but i fixed it by changing the registry value

problem still remained...

i was wondering whether upgrade my netbook to windows8 or not but i was anxious about the apps problem
Hi,

Check with Lenovo Support, their on-line documentation and drivers, and ask in their
forums about any known issues. There may be BIOS, chipset, and major on-board
device driver updates available and/or required.
