    Well, trying to download 8.1 from the store, here at the coffee shop, w/ an 11n.

    36% done with 2 hours before I gotta go! CAN IT BE DONE?

    We shall see....:fear:

    9:30 and it says it is applying changes...63% done....:twitch:
    9:45 and it is , Gathering Info...74% done...:confused:

    BTW, the connection here was getting 6-9 Mbps...much better than anywhere else I've been with free WiFi...:D It is not busy, yet. Around Lunch here, one can keep getting booted with all the Apple's running here! :laugh:

    Done!! :D
    Will have to clean it up after work tonight, or at work, if I get the chance.

    you are aware that the speed of their wifi means nothing about the speed you'll get on a shared internet connection, yeah? you could put 11.n or 11.ac wifi on a 56k dial up connection if you wanted...

    After just getting 8.1 done, I'll wait for it. I've done enough downloading and re-booting to last me a while!

    Why, I wonder after getting 8.1, did windows decide to omit the info on available WiFi networks? In 8 I could hover over a connection and it would pop up info about it, g or n, etc.

    Just a little quirk I noticed and now miss.

    My DISM image got corrupted somehow after these updates, although sfc /scannow doesnt find anything, so its ok..

    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 6.3.9600.17031

    Image Version: 6.3.9600.17031

    [==========================100.0%==========================]
    The restore operation failed. Either the repair source was not found or the comp
    onent store cannot be repaired.

    Error: 0x800f081f

    DISM failed. No operation was performed.
    For more information, review the log file.

    The DISM log file can be found at C:\WINDOWS\Logs\DISM\dism.log

    Windows update works properly too, quick googling showed its windows update specific.

    Guess I'll ignore until windows actually updates to update1, maybe it will fix itself then since it apparently fetches online DISM image info?

    I'm really looking forward to finally having synced tabs and favourites, that'll be massively handy for me.

    When, again, is the 1st update released for 8.1? Rather than doing it myself, I prefer to have the Microputz update flag tell me to do it. Is it this Tuesday? Or sometime later?

    :confused:

    installed patches and then the 8.1 Update in
    2 pcs
    1 laptop
    2 surface
    (now expecting 2 winphones to enter in updating extasis or not...)
    it takes a while stays at 10% but then restarts goes to 80% and finishes.

    Novelties are cool.... just polishing....

    There is SOMETHING in the display/fonts/drawing that is much better... don't know what it is!!! Any one knows?

    Ihave been checking every single option with my wife on all the devices and we love 8.1 Update. Better will be really hard, it is almost perfect! No more 2 windows desktops! It seems like one... but options are still 2-way...

    Does this mean the Update loaded yesterday while I was watching the Hockey game?

    [​IMG]

    These look like I should install them, However, they do not look like the update....:confused:

    [​IMG]

    I know I could look this up but, is this the update? Or is this something else? I would love one of our wonderful Guru's here to enlighten me, Please?

    As usual, MS makes a wording mess. The big update is not called 'update for win 8.1' but 'win 8.1update'....
    Just install all shown, then recheck fo updates again.

    2. That Sync settings between your devices.... is a really dangerous option if you use a fine tuned environment... (this is in the OneDrive settings section)

    Yeah, the Update 1 does not download until you do the regular Patch Tuesday updates first. Then when you check again, it's there.

    Updated all my rigs...no major issues. I'm still using Start8 for my start menu duties, but beyond that everything seems good. I gotta say 8.1 has been very stable and fast for me. :toast:
