    Biggest thing that I learnt from it....

    RTFM before install lol...

    Nvidia drivers needed to be up to date - which mine weren't - so got a black screen and had to roll back

    We use Kaspersky here - a colleague has just installed without reading up on compatibility first, and is currently weeping into his keyboard.

    Just spoke to MS, they said it should appear early next week in our VLSC, the USA are getting it first...

    I just searched for Windows 8 Pro in the search box - doesn't matter as you can't download it anyway!

    I'm getting 4KB/Sec, I'll have it in 243 hours (That's if it doesn't bomb out at 9%...) Think I'll just wait!

    Me too - I was hoping it would sort out the mess of errors that Windows 8 is, but the irony that 8.1 is almost impossible to get hold of is not lost on me!

    I use Classic Start. You can configure it to look identical to the Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 start menu.

    If you've relocated your users directories to a secondary partition then the upgrade won't even work
    So sucks to be a home user with a primary "but smaller" SSD drive it seems.

    That's ridiculous! I pointed all my libraries at a secondary partition but never got round to sorting out symlinks - feel lucky I didn't now!

    Still nothing in VLSC. Contacted VLSC support and they stated it is a known issue that some subscribers are not able to view let alone download the 8.1 files. I've had the KMS and MAK keys for over a month now. 1-6 business day turnaround.

    If you have a Technet subscription as part of your VLSC it's available in the subscriber downloads there, including the Enterprise version and downloads at a good speed
