Thread: Anyone get Win 8.1 Update 1 running?

    For the folks that want to be on that bleeding edge and just can't wait for the official release of Win8.1 update 1, I'd like to IMHO make a suggestion before you try to install it.

    Make sure your BIOS is the latest and make sure all your drivers are the latest and make sure your OS is updated. Both easily done by doing a Check for Updates with Asus Live Update (in desktop mode > taskbar > Notifications) and doing a Windows Update check.

    Good luck.

    Just as a alternative to consider, anyone wishing to check it out could try just running a VM of it instead of installing it... That way you don't have to worry about anything permanent happening to your system...

    Or just look at what other people are reporting...

    I've installed the latest leak on all 5 of my Windows 8.1 machines. 3 desktops, a Toshiba laptop and my T100. I can definitely say that there is a slight performance improvement. When using a keyboard and mouse, the update is more significant. It seems to have made the T100 a little snappier overall though.

    How did you install it, and what link did you download the T100 files from?

    No problem.
    I install all Updates f. MS.
    Go to the Store, search Updates and install (x86).

    WTF? I have tried several downloads of the x86 software. Every time I try to run it, it launches the installer and then gives an error window saying, "This Update is Not Applicable to Your Computer"...

    How can this be? I am on the same tablet as everyone else, installing the files from the same source, etc...

    Do I have to save them to a particular directory? All of my Windows updates, Asus updates and BIOS are current.

    What gives?

    I wouldn't worry too much, it's probable that it isn't the final build anyway...

    Report suggests prematurely released Windows 8.1 Update 1 might not be the final build | WinBeta

    I have installed the Update 1 via the links in the MDL forums. Before doing so I created a restore point to go back to just in case. The installs went well and should if you follow the steps outlined in the forum.
    All is running well for me on both my ASUS tablet and my laptop after updating. I enjoy the ability to pin the Modern Apps to the taskbar on my laptop version. The update to the tablet provides for an improved search and as stated in the forum here things seem to be running smoother than before.
    Error on the side of caution if you choose to install the updates manually. The warranty can be compromised if you screw up your tablet and try to send it back to ASUS.
    In other words, if you are not familiar with dealing with manual installs its better to wait until April 8 as the moderator suggests.
