Users of Microsoft’s Surface RT will be glad to hear that Microsoft has released a fix after numerous complaints were issued once Microsoft users updated to Windows RT 8.1 and found their machine unusable. This embarrassing set of circumstances would see the Surface RT display a boot configuration errors, which led many users to experience a blue screen with a start-up error. Microsoft has consequently pulled the Windows RT 8.1 from their website amidst the controversy.
If your Surface RT is bricked, it is now possible to recover and make your machine workable with the new update. The user will need to download the recovery images from the Microsoft’s Website onto another PC or laptop. You will then need to create a recovery drive and have a USB drive with at least 4GB of storage. The download contains a PDF file that will give the user an in-depth guide to recover the Surface RT and make it functional again.
It is important to note, that this is not a simple one click fix all solution, the user will have to follow careful instructions in the command prompt. This may be a pain, but at least you will get the usability of the machine back in working order and will also give the Surface RT users an exclusive new look at the Windows RT 8.1, hopefully without any of the problems that this recent update has caused.
Do you feel this recent debacle concerning the Surface RT and the updated Windows RT 8.1 has damaged the credibility of Microsoft? Are you a Surface RT user who has been affected by the recent update? Do you think Microsoft acted quick enough to solve the problem?
