    Can anyone confirm either of the following for me:

    this is no longer an issue for people who keep their windows 8.1 updated;


    this bug only interferes with creating system images, and if you successfully made a system image (which I have) this bug will not interfere with restoring with it.

    As of right now I am using Acronis True Image to back up my boot drive (SSD) to my internal HDD, and I use System Image Restore to back up my SSD to an external HDD that is unplugged most of the time. I would like to know for sure that if something happens that forces me to use the image on my external HDD, I won't run into some stupid error that prevents me from doing so.

    Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center

    This issue has been fixed in the new installation media for Windows 8.1 with Update 1

    I had this problem with trying to create a system image in UEFI mode. The system image backup did not affect my legacy computer with the RTM version of Windows 8.1 due to there are different partitions with UEFI and Non UEFI - "MBR vs GPT"

    I have no problems with the new Install media with Update 1

    Google "Windows 8.1 Media Creation tool", download the file, and it will download the new media.
