There’s some big trouble for those looking to update their Windows RT tabletâ€”Microsoft has temporarily pulled the RT 8.1 update from their Windows store.Â Those who’ve installed the update have been experiencing blue screens on startup. Â RT 8.1 is an operating system for tablets and lightweight, slim personal computers. It runs built-in apps, or apps downloaded from Microsoft Windows store.
A Microsoft spokesperson said that they’re also working frantically to repair the update, and will provide a new one as soon as possible, however he didn’t say how long it would take. Microsoft released the following message:
â€œMicrosoft is investigating a situation affecting a limited number of users updating their Windows RT device to Windows RT 8.1. As a result, we have temporarily removed the Windows RT 8.1 update from the Windows Store. We are working to resolve the situation as quickly as possible and apologize for any inconvenience.â€
Microsoft also said that customers who’ve ordered the new Surface 2 Tablets don’t need to worry, as the RT 8.1 update is preinstalled and should work properly. Surface 2 is being released tomorrow, October 22nd.
