Windows 8.1 for Surface RT fix... almost 

IMPORTANT read recent posts before doing these steps!


After searching the forums for a bit I found a fix!

1. Place and rename the MSU file in an easily accessible place, e.g. C:\8preview\preview.msu

2. open command prompt in administrator mode.

3. Type: Expand –F:* c:\8preview\preview.msu C:\8preview\

4. Type: DISM.exe /Online /Add-Package /PackagePath:c:\8preview\

From Johan Rensenbrink on

So now for the install …






And the anti-climax:



Wow I never thought this would be so hard….

Surface RT 8.1, maybe I am impatient! 

After seeing the post come up in my sad to say Facebook feed went on to download the 8.1 update for my Surface RT. Am a little confused by how this error is to be fixed but still am a little disappointed.


Error “The update is not applicable to your computer”

Hopefully will fix a bit later, for the moment no 8.1 for me and many others.
