Upgrade Install to Windows 8 or Windows 8.1

  1. #120

    This is a "Thank you" message to Brink and others who posted HELP messages to me. As many of you have seen - I have been posting several messages saying that I was unable to get win 8.1 to be loaded without reverting back to win 8,.

    Yesterday and last night I used the following procedures to get my win 8 upgraded back to win 8.1, and it all loaded the new win 8.1 data while I was sleeping.. so when I got up this morning, and walked to this Acer 4-in-1 desktop it was ready for me to tell it which Wireless connection wished to connect. I made the selection, and it allowed the correction and then loaded the new win 8.1 update it had downloaded during last night.

    The desktop continued, and eventually upgraded all to win 8.1 and allowed a reboot to this screen (below) with this win 8.1

    Good morning to all. My Win 8.1 is still working fine and I have rebooted several times, and done many other things.

    Now I need to be able to see the Windows Icon on right side of the screen in order to upgrade to win 10, and so far I have not been able to see it. So am still looking for info about upgrade to win 10.

    Thanks to all. Cliff
