This is essentially a service pack. The testing stuff was done months ago.
EDIT: And I mean historically things have been rather smooth.
OOOHHHH K stopping download now..
Open Windows Strore to do it!
So does it mean if I just burn the update file to a CD and make it a bootable disc, i can install a fresh Windows 8.1?
I am glad a I have full dreamspark I was able to download w/ key a few weeks ago
We forgive you this time, since next time you will know better.
I keep my homework and assignments on cloud.
That isn't a very accurate or complete statement. Its actually a bit more complicated then simply saying you'll have to reinstall your software as noted here:
Basically it depends on what you're updating from. For example:
Near as I can tell, Windows Store apps AKA Metro apps aren't very popular and as such few people will likely notice or care if the default Metro apps are changed or if a free Metro demo of Angry Birds is no longer there.
Those who are upgrading from 8.1 Preview to Windows 8.1 final probably already knew what they were getting into or at the very least should have.
Ahhh, hell no....I JUST finished getting all my software reinstalled because I had to do a refresh install because my W8 went belly up and couldn't be fixed. I'm gonna wait awhile before I do this.
really im not interested, i prefer wait for next version (win 9) than upgrading to 8 or 8.1
Also lets not forget that when you upload content to a "cloud" server that content is protected by them for you, but they now own it. That data is at the mercy of the provider of said "cloud" server provider, both in term's of security, and release. Reason why I trust only local content, on local devices I.E External HDD's and USB Thumb Drives's. The most risky I get here is network partition's for home share on the computer's.
Only if you're updating from the Preview, and even then only in certain cases. I went from 8.1 Preview to 8.1 RTM on both my Surface and laptop and wasn't required to reinstall anything. Even 8 to 8.1 on my desktop was smooth, nothing lost.
Okay, I'm done with Windows 8.1, it's horrible. Way too many issues.
Fresh installing Windows 8 Pro since everything seems to have went tits up after I upgraded to 8.1; funny thing is, installing Windows 8 Pro will probably also take a lot less time than upgrading from 8 to 8.1
Did it create a Windows OLD file?
On my laptop and desktop yes, on my Surface it didn't. I upgraded my laptop and desktop via the Windows 8.1 ISO from Technet.
Where can i bloody buy Win8.1 online, download ISO image and install the thing with USB drive? Want to go legit, but their webpages are so ridiculously confusing it's crazy. No wonder people prefer war_ez if they can't make one big red button with BUY written on it that would lead you to a purchasing process. Totally moronic.
Well, I just took a nap, woke up and bam: Windows 8.1 running!
Nah, everything stayed the same here, but i think i will have to refresh/repair windows update it acts funny and takes for ages.
Also all drivers/etc went smooth, even xfi driver.. Im using default windows bluetooth app and no issues with that either.
Well Im really liking this new change, imo its what win8 should have been by default.
COUGH more like they getting greedy.
Upgraded on my laptop from 8 to 8.1 a few weeks ago (MSDN) and didn't have to re-install anything...
Does anyone have a link to the official ISO for x64?
Can anyone confirm this for me?
I have a Win 8 Pro 64 Bit license. Can I download the Win 8.1 Pro 64 Bit ISO and do a fresh install with my Win 8 Pro 64 Bit key? If not, I'm going to get pissed...
