    Microsoft used to make ISO's available for download at DigitalRiver. They've since stopped for whatever reason. I've downloaded Windows ISO's from the Pirate Bay before even though I had a full legal license. So long as the hashes match, it's is impossible for the Pirate Bay version to have any alterations at all.

    On hashes like MD5 and SHA, changing 1 byte will typically change over half the hash values.

    If you haven't tried the "Refresh" option in Windows 8, try that first. It's basically a full reinstall of Windows and only takes 10 to 15 minutes.
    The problem is that this ISO is modified. It's under 3GB, and so will differ from true MS images. The refresh setting did not work for me. It does refresh the PC (when it works) but does not solve the freezing boot problems. I am perplexed as to why, but I'm sure one of ASUS's updates must modify *something* in the boot process. Fixing the MBR did not work for me, either.

    Why not try a full Window 8.1 ISO? It seems some others have done that. Though I wouldn't want to have to find all the necessary drivers. I installed all the updated drivers from Asus's site and it gave me freeze issues, a refresh fixed them. I strongly suspect one or more of the drivers on the Asus site is causing real issues. I've no idea which, so I'm staying away from most of the drivers on Asus's site unless there's a good and specific reason to update specific items. The only one I've installed is the latest ASUS ACReminder, V1.0.2 and that hasn't caused any issues.

    I have installed the Asus drivers and updates delivered through Windows Update, they have not caused any freeze issues for me.

    Reinstalling a full 8.1 ISO would be my last resort after first trying refresh, then full recovery. If your recovery image is still present and that doesn't fix your freezing, it could be a hardware issue, but it's probably software.

    No, re-installing give you control of how it should be configured, it also give you an understanding of what needs to be installed and what not, like some users here during the process figured out that asus official drivers cause an issue, on top of that in process of manufacturing asus would not have someone installing from fresh each tablet that goes out, they would use an image clone, from my experience cloning is successful most of the time but occasionally it doesnt go smooth this gets passed on to customer.

    Also in my experience hardware issue is lot more evident during fresh install.

    If you are able to acquire install media for Windows you should be able to find install media for Office Home and Student as well. You have the key after all.

    i have successfully re-installed.

    1. new BIOS update before re-install and test
    2. Backed up license infomation
    3. UEFI USB boot with Win 8.1 core x32 - didnt even ask for key, must be embedded in BIOS
    4. Deleted wasted space recovery partition (during OS install)
    5. Run windows updates
    6. Downloaded remaining drivers software from asus
    7. Run asus live update to download: 'overall system improvement' update - think thats what it was called.
    8. Activated and downloaded M Office with the product key card
    9. Done Image backup of the whole hdd

    Once i had an issue where i installed Windows and went to windows updates, left it for 30 mins to install, came back and it was just black screen, couldnt do anything, so forced to boot into USB and re-installed again; think it might of went into hibernation and messed up all updates - it was quicker to re-install again

    So far running great!

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a french user of this powerful Asus T100, and i need your tips.

    I didn't read this thread before re install my tablet... and i did NOT update the bios before.

    At the moment, i update everything, reinstall all drivers and still have some problems.

    I can't update the bios beacause of this messge with "Winflash" : Impossible to allocate stamp memory to save the bios file" (i translate it from french)

    I have another probleme, when i shutdown the tablet, it do not shut but it restart...

    and the last problem is that i loss 50 % of battery on one night...

    Anyone can help me ? Thank's a lot

    Windows 8.1 Pro Install and Space

    That said I don't see any reason why a fresh install would not work so long as you create a UEFI bootable USB stick to install Windows from. I highly recommend you download and have available all drivers from ASUS's site prior to starting. Would really suck to start the process and find the drivers are not available for some reason (Yes, it's happened to me before.)

    Good Luck!
    Hi Martian,

    I am considering the 32 gb SDD + 500 GB HDD Asus T100. I need it for school and need windows 8.1 pro to connect to our servers. How was the upgrade to Windows 8.1 Pro? Would there be enough space on a 32 GB HDD to do so? I want to keep windows and office on the SDD for speed/multi-tasking for schoolwork and keep the 500 gb hdd for extra space. Thanks for the help! Any other experiences you've had since your post would be great as well.
