    You can leave driver installation enabled and disable only "Automatically get device app and info..." option. This way you will still get all updates and at the same time get rid of that message. I don't see much harm disabling that option.

    Continues Errors at startup "Metadata staging failed"


    I made an interesting discovery. Apparently microsoft has changed something on the domain. Maybe someone of you can order what to do.

    I have checked the path in the registry and this is the result.
    The path is for Metdaten: go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=252669&clcid=0x409

    I have the solution for the problem.
    Searches on regedit for the following entry: DeviceMetadataServiceURL
    There you change the URL in the following: http://dmd.metaservices.microsoft.com/dms/metadata.svc
    after you have closed the editor is saved the change.
    Now the problem is solved and it will also re-loaded device information.

    Thanks, this seems to be the right solution. I am now getting the following information event:

    Thank you very much! I have one more question. If I leave everything as is, will I experience any problems or negative consequences (particularly while updating my system), apart from the obvious red marks and error messages in event viewer? Can anyone please answer this? Thanks

    Thank you, fantastic job! Sounds like the perfect solution. I'm a bit afraid to touch the registry, but I will try it out nonetheless

    Did it and worked like a charm, thank you again

    How did you discover the new URL/path ? & its ok for the win8.1 hardware metadata ?

    I am confused as to why this post has been marked as resolved:

    
    I am going to sit back and wait for a few days I think. I feel Windows may fix this server issue????
    
    I have already invested many hours since Thursday and I was working on restoring a Laptop and reinstalling the OS from last Tuesday I know for certain this issue started on Thursday after 5pm.
    
    No windows updates have been performed on this Laptop so it was not the windows updates issued on 09/09/14. The Link to the Windows 7 forum states this may be an underlying factor but I know for certain it is not.
    It is doing this on all my Laptops and none of them had any updates performed since August, no hardware changes, noting.
    
    I feel changing the system not to automatically install drivers as indicated again the link to the Windows Forum or changing the url: is merely masking an issue with the windows server. Also changing the settings for hardware updates is a mask and is not recommended.
    
    Hope some of you agree with me.
    
    Hello Microsoft moderators reading this page - please can you comment and fix this url:???
    Thanks again to all of you and lets keep the post going until Microsoft fix this issue.

    Thanks again to all of you and lets keep the post going until Microsoft fix this issue. Sorry I am new to this forum and didn't want to start a new post but feel masking the issue is not a resolution. Hope some of you agree with me. I stand corrected if I am wrong but feel you should all know that I can say hand on heart this is not a windows update issue. Look forward to all of you posting your comments on this issue and how many of us are facing this issue, millions????

    I have read the following document and then understood the workings of the STAGE DEVICE.
    https://edulibs.org/get_paper.php?id=8646177


    Now that I've tested everything in detail, I can say that for me everything works. I can install new hardware and drivers are located and installed via Windows Update. The information is being loaded.
    Maybe this is just a temporary problem which Micrsosoft as drives with the reserves, but I just did not want to wait for a patch.

    I agree 100%.

    I have this exact same issue and it started 2 days after all the 9/9 updates so I am not totally convinced it is directly related to the updates installed on 9/9/14. Possibly some other background update. I do think it is entirely possible that something has changed on the Microsoft end though because obviously there is some sort of communication issue with Metadata collection.

    If MS changed a URL I am surprised it has not affected more users. This is the first 8.1 error issue I have had with this PC since purchase last December. Nothing has changed on my PC NOTHING! File Checker shows no issues and Component Store is clean.

    I am scheduled for a call from Tier 2 MS Support on Tuesday to examine the issue but I don't have much confidence in those folks. If simply changing the URL in the Registry will fix the problem, I can do that but I would like to have more information. I don't want to make any changes that might backfire with a future update. I have Restore Points, Custom Refresh Images and Macrium Images on an external drive to fall back on but I still want more of an explanation.

    I hope to hear from more users.

    Thanks
