    Upgrading to 8.1 and RDP


    I have a machine that I primarily connect to using RDP. It has no monitor and things work well using rdp. If I start updating it to 8.1 will there be a problem using rdp to finish the setup? I know that after rebooting it asks a couple of questions before it gets to the login screen. Can I rdp to it during that time or will I have to connect a monitor to it to finish the setup?

    I don't know the answer to that, but if it were me, I'd just attach the monitor to it for the duration, then go back to what I'd been doing before.
