I haven't found that on the net yet.) He then attempted to upgrade the BIOS and Windows won't boot anymore. He's gonna attempt to reinstall W8 and see what happens.
This all happened just tonight so, meantime, any hints?
Results are that he did a clean install and all is well, no issues. FWIW, on mine I've yet to see any issues either. Considering the machine I'm on W8 works quite well.
