The question is did you clean install or did you upgrade to 8.1? Personally I really thought about just doing a clean install using the 8.1 technet iso floating around. So last night I cloned my SSD onto a 250GB 2.5 hard drive, but there is not much more I loath than reinstalling windows on my computer. Which is why I don't do it very often. So I started the upgrade and it said
"While the update is downloading you can continue working, we will let you know when we are ready for the next step" or something like that
.So I had some things open on my computer and then I had to go to a service call. When I got back the windows 8.1 had taken upon itself to start the install and reboot my computer. Good thing I didn't have anything open or anything important I wanted to save.. So far the computer after the upgrade of the install of windows 8 every thing is running great. Had to reinstall Vmware but that's about it. I also noticed the update deshared my printer and I had a LOT of old stuff in the recycle bin I had previously deleted back in August, so that was strange.
