    Boys and Girls, Ladies and Gentlemen, please remember 8.1 is still a beta no matter what name MS has given it (remember VMs can be your friend). . .

    Reinstall Win8.1


    Well, 1 Doodit !

    Wiped the AMD-Asus clean, again, & installed (the disk image route) a new download of Win8.1.

    Seems to be OK now! That is the fun of beta testing!

    I guess it was a case of too many bits laying around on the HD.

    Yah I know but I like to run it on the real hardware and get a heads up if something doesn't play well with the upgrade. Plus I'm more inclined to actually use it that way. To each his own though, it comes down to what works for you.

    Supposedly, Microsoft thinks everyone will upgrade to 8.1. Sure wish the new IE 11 could be tested on Win 8.




    Microsoft officials are not saying when to expect the final version of IE11 for Windows 7 to be available. The final version of IE 11 for Windows 8.1 is on track to be released to manufacturing in August 2013, when 8.1 itself RTMs. And just in case anyone was wondering, Microsoft will not be making IE11 available to Windows 8 users because the company is assuming almost all of them will be updating to Windows 8.1.
