    I had to do a refresh myself. It just flipped: black screen on desktop for 10minutes... good thing it's solved now and never happended again. The hardware is new and OEM OS but had to remove some preinstalled programs. Next time I'll reinstall the damn thing form my Win8 Core DVD I made just in case. No more extraware and bloatware here, I'm keeping a fresh image on external HDD and update all my drivers regularly.

    I have to say that I never had any problems with the pre-versions and the RTM. But I run them in virtual. The fact that I don't like Windows 8 is another matter.
