    Needed a restart before showing up in store.

    No hurry or need for 8.1 ftm, but curiosity will probably win (some good imaging to be done first).

    Hi folks
    About 30 mins to go -- will then run some sort of comparison between the RTM and today's version (X-64 ISO's TechNet).

    Off for a nice Glass of Scotch while waiting !!!!

    At least it gave me an error code this time around - 0xC1900101 - 0x20017 which appeared around the preview time. Now to track down the culprit.

    At least I don't have to keep downloading the update.

    One more try tonight...

    Just put it on a laptop and all went well.
    So then I upgraded my main machine. Everything went to plan except for one glitch - I changed the settings to allow booting to desktop mode. Upon booting it unexpectedly asked for my password - previously I'd opted out of that.

    Then the desktop wallpaper shown appeared to be zoomed in to a ridiculous degree - it looked like a pixel grid pattern. Fixed by re-choosing the wallpaper image.

    All looking good. (So far)

    Which ISO did you download there Jimbo? Windows 8.1 (multiple editions) (x64) - DVD (English) is the one I want but I don't see a new version of that one.

    Went into the bios and found it was disabled then re enabled it, that fixed it

    Third times a charm. Looks like it was an app. Uninstalled them all (didn't have many to begin with) and it went smoothly.


    One machine down, one to go.

    OK, it looks like all the Enterprise and VL editions are up. The regular 8.1 English is the one I'm looking for. I'm sure it will show up eventually.

    As I posted on another thread, I had a Logitech Updater error after the 8.1 installation (see screen shot below). I had to use Win Patrol to delete the Logitech updater dll as other suggestions on the web didn't work.

    I'm downloading 8.1 upgrade on a second system now, it too has a Logitech mouse I'll see what happens with that one.

    Here is the error I had to fix:
