    MS is a joke these days


    People abused me when I stated that (IMO) it is just slackness (or sheer bloody mindedness) on the part of MS, that they don't provide a proper OS installer.

    Now it seems they can't even make a proper upgrade installer for the locked down RT.

    Also, a problem has been discovered with the W8.1 "upgrade".

    MS keep creating new reasons for people/businesses to avoid the Windows 8/Windows 8.1 "upgrade".

    This RT8.1 problem is just not on a few sites and forums.
    It's on radio stations news for everybody to hear as they should.
    I got the news on WTAM 1100 50.000 watts station.
    WTAM 1100 covers over 30 states and about half of Canada.

    I wonder when Microsoft fixes this problem will it get such coverage.

    I'm thinking Microsoft was in a hurry to fix 8.0 that 8.1 wasn't tested properly.

    Then you should have a backup, and restore it. Or an image backup.

    Don't have a backup? That sucks. That's why its crucial to have a backup before doing this.

    Better yet, don't upgrade to 8(.1). Just seeing the steps that Microsoft has taken with 8(.1) makes me question why anyone would get it. I mean, its obvious they don't care about their users anymore.

    I wasn't referring to my pc, but to the many people whose pc is now a brick because of this and it will cost many of them some dollars to get it fixed.
    How sad it is that you find hilarity in other peoples misfortune.
