Microsoft recently pulled the Window RT 8.1 software update, the update was causing issues for owners of the Microsoft Surface RT tablet.
Yesterday Microsoft released a Surface RT recovery image to fix the issue for people with Surface RT tablets and now Microsoft has released a statement about the issues.
“Based on our investigations of a situation customers have encountered updating to Windows RT 8.1, we can confirm that as of now this is a Windows update issue only affecting Surface RT customers. While only less than 1 out of every 1,000 (or less than 0.1 percent) Surface RT customers who have installed Windows RT 8.1 have been impacted, improving their experience and ensuring their systems are fully operable as quickly as possible is our number one priority.
We have made recovery media available for download here along with actionable guidance for affected customers. We continue to work towards making the Windows RT 8.1 update available in the Windows Store again and apologize for any inconvenience. Further updates will be provided as they become available.”
