I'm not having that issue.
ugh, i'm pretty annoyed then. this windows 8 install was clean installed barely a week ago, and I've barely even installed any extra software, I expected an upgrade from such a pristine install to not have any issues
And of course microsoft is making it a pain in the ass to just clean install 8.1 by not providing 8.1 iso's, and the windows 8.1 setupbox application doesn't let you create a bootable usb because when it asks for a key the regular windows 8 one doesn't work /rant.
EDIT: Think I found a workaround for creating 8.1 install media lol. I downloaded the regular windows 8 setup application, entered my product key, it accepted it and started the download. I quit the installer, than started the windows 8.1 setup application (both downloaded from here: http://windows.micro...roduct-key-only), and it just skipped straight to "Downloading Windows 8.1" without asking for a key:
EDIT2: wewt, my clean install was a success Was able to create the usb install media, clean install, use generic placeholder key during install (for some reason win8.1's installer won't accept a legit windows 8 key during install, but can be activated with it post-install just fine, found one of the generic keys easily via google, there's several 'generic' keys that the win8 installer will accept to let you do the install, but they obviously don't allow activation) and activate with my legit key post install. Windows update appears to be fixed now.
