    8.1 Successes?


    So I see many having issues updating to 8.1 here. Is this just few minority or are many having an issue? I just reinstalled my entire win8 about a month ago so I really don't feel like doing it again.

    Honestly, I'm not even sure how my upgrade is going. HERE. I am starting to miss the days when upgrading didn't involve an App store, though.

    I hope to have good feedback for you -- eventually.

    Mine seems fine.

    It took a couple of hours including the downloading. At first browsers were having problems with locating DNS. After a couple of reboots the problem seems to be resolved. I had to re-install Gadgets and reinstate login without entering the password.

    Mine is TBD. After one upgrade and it fussing about my UEFI default security settings, I went with a fresh Windows 8 install, setup my UEFI for secure, and now waiting on the very long download from the Windows Store.

    Im having the same issue. I am unable to enable secure boot because my computer came with windows 7. Also is anyone having issues with metro apps running in the background after closing? I have modenmix and I'm wondering if that could be the culprit. I have enabled boot to desktop and it seems to take longer to boot than it did in win 8. I am also having issues connecting to the internet. In 8 I was able to instantly connect after boot, now it takes about 3-5 minutes after boot to connect. Any tips/suggestions on how to resolve these issues would be greatly appreciated.

    During the download, the lack of visual progress bars concerned me.
    Download took about 20 minutes.
    Installed fine (at least 30 minutes).

    I finally have confirmation that "apps" now stands for my desktop programs, not just App Store applications. I (we all do, I presume) now need to re-install every program & update. So, this will take several hours.

    It's all good.

    Well all is said and done. No harm no foul. Updated and no issues so far.

    I reset the store and it worked no problem

    No problems here either, download and update went smoothly. The only thing I needed to do upon completion was to change the PC settings to login automatically.
