    I did a fresh install of enterprise x64 from VLSC into a VM. There was no option to setup a local account. I had to use my Microsoft account, then receive a security code on my mobile. This is unacceptable for an enterprise version. Does anyone know if I install with MDT will it bypass this BS.

    EDIT: this default yellow desktop is horrid.

    Thanks,

    There is, but you didn't see it.

    You can also disconnect the VMs network adapter or use an AutoUnattend.xml file to automate the installation of Windows.

    I still can't download it from VLSC!

    And my current Windows 8 test PCs cannot use Update (hangs every time)

    Are MS really trying to push us towards Macs? Windows 8 is making Vista look good. At least when I installed Vista the updates worked!

    I can confirm VLSC worked very well on Sunday for me - very fast and no problem using the web download (just my slow 2mb connection was the issue! LOL)

    8.1 installed with ease and no problems.

    I now hasten to add *do not use Update*. Out of all the Update installations, nearly everyone I know has had some form of issues. Of all the updates done (on Pro machines) from ISO we've had no issues.

    Looks like I got off lightly, my Surface RT updated without any problems. I'm more concerned about Exchange 2010 OWA being forced into the rubbish 'light' mode in IE11 because the Exchange team still haven't sorted out a fix despite knowing about the problem since July. (2013 is also affected but fixed in CU2)

    Touch wood, so far all the machines I've upgraded to 8.1 don't seem to be affected by any of the reported issues. In fact, I have to grudgingly admit that a five year old PC I put Windows 8 on in a moment of boredom is now flying and very happy with 8.1 and I'm now using it as a secondary workstation in my office.

    Hmm. 3.7 GB download and we get a useless 'Start' button and a few extra menu options. The download size suggested an entire OS reinstall but that appears to be untrue

    It's Windows 8.1 Day!
    It tries to come off as a cheery sort of holiday like a birthday or such, but to me it reads, "It's Tax Day!"
