I will keep this in mind, Drone! Again, thanks for the extremely useful advice.
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....
9:30 and it says it is applying changes...63% done....
9:45 and it is , Gathering Info...74% done...
BTW, the connection here was getting 6-9 Mbps...much better than anywhere else I've been with free WiFi... It is not busy, yet. Around Lunch here, one can keep getting booted with all the Apple's running here!
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...
Well just done the 4+2 updates for update 1, no problems at all.
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
Image Version: 6.3.9600.17031
The restore operation failed. Either the repair source was not found or the comp
onent store cannot be repaired.
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 thought i imagined seeing that once, win 8.1's wifi stuff seems so... limited
Btw final 8.1 update 1 iso is on MSDN called en_windows_8.1_with_update_x64_dvd_4065090.iso
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?
This Tuesday, April 8.
whats gunna haven for those of us with start8 and this update - will we suddenly have two start menus?
^ there's no start menu in windows 8.1 update 1
Nice 8.1u1 hands on from TechRadar
installed patches and then the 8.1 Update in
(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?
For those who want to download it manually links are here
And don't forget to clean the mess when you're done
edit: some info
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?
These look like I should install them, However, they do not look like the update....
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?
No, the update was much bigger (I think mine was 600-900MB). You could look in your update history to see if it's there
It should be this package:
i wanna update it but maybe i wait a little just to check is there any mess that made by the update
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)
Interesting video on Microsoft Research's work with interactive live tiles http://microsoft-news.com/microsoft...-tiles-on-windows-watch-the-video-demo-of-it/
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.
Hmmm for some people update gone wrong
And another weird stuff
Why it's mandatory? Why they try so hard to forget 8.1 lol
