    Can W8.1 create System Repair Disc vs. a Thumb Drive?

    Found one and was shocked that it would take six hours to download. All the download sites were Microsoft. Tried three times on one PC and once on another. Does this sound rational? The copy that did end, I burned to a DVD. As luck would have it, it would not load. Tried two PC's and three DVD...

    Using generic W8.1, can I use Raid-0 or Raid-5 successfully as my Boot Drive? If so, do I just 'somehow' clone an existing System onto a Raid install?

    Solved Unusual W8.0 to 8.1 behavior, upgrades to 8.1 then reverts back to 8.0?

    Frustration! I tried the Directly option and looped for about two days. Downloading, installing, reverting!!! I am going to take a break from this and reevaluate what I am doing and 'why'.
