Has Anyone here been able to install from 8.1 Preview on a Surface Pro? If you have - steps would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
I have it running and it actually worked first time which shocked me.
don't know if it helps, but here's what I did: - YMMV
- Rolled back the Surface Pro to Windows 8.0 Vanilla.
I had been running 8.1 preview on it, so after backing up any files I needed, I did a full roll back to vanilla 8.0.
- Downloaded the Windows 8.1 ISO from MSDN, mounted it on the surface pro and ran the .exe
- approx. 15 minutes later, it was installed - no problems at all in my case. Don't know if resetting back to 8.0 made it run better or not, but it did work for me.
I've been reinstalling all my programs since and so far so good, except...
I'm having issues with the wifi dropping out. Apparently it was quite common with the surface pro with the 8.1 preview, but I never had that issue, only now I've gone to RTM am I getting it - wonder if anyone else is? Sometimes turning wifi off and on again fixes it, sometimes I have to restart. Been trying to download Adobe Creative cloud all night, but the wifi always drops out before it installs
