When I want to transfer BF4 between drives or systems I just start downloading it from origin to the drive/folder I want it to be (origin creates folders and paths etc), after 30secs I pause the download, paste the whole old folder where the new one is ( I have a hyperX 64GB flash drive for moving folders between systems), resume download, origin starts checking, sees everything is there and it's done.

So I tried launching from Battlelog but no go. Says initializing down the bottom of the Browser and a BF4 splash screen comes up (further than it got last time) but it just says some error about Origin not being installed. But obviously it is. This is really starting to give me the s***s to be honest.

I was hopeful Steam's cross platform (Windows/Mac/Linux) desktop approach would catch on with EA (not sure why they bothered with AMD's Mantle).

So, T'Dubed thanks for the work on win7 vs win8 using the new Nvidia drivers! That really helped getting me off the fence whether to use win8 vs win7 with my SSD install. +rep

Going to transfer (invalidate) my Win8 upgrade license and pawn it off to a family member running XP. Then go back to Win7 to save a few bucks avoiding the M$ XP money grab. After using it for 3 months I still have too much hate and loathing of Win8.1. If I'm lucky I can keep playing BF without wasting another $100 on M$ ever again.

BTW for those of you using Win8 upgrade media you can't use Samsung's data migration app. You can't even use microsoft's system image restore process either (from what I can tell having tried both). I'd have to go back to the original install media first to put Win8 on my new SSD mad.gif So, since T'Dubed demonstrated Win7 runs BF4 better, with the Nvidia beta drivers, I see no reason to keep running Win8.1 rolleyes.gif

No worries bro - as for the win7 > win8.1 - it still surprises me.
I'll do some quick benches today - see if the win7 ones are re-valid.
I did do the win7 ones so many times - and they always ended up like that. I have no idea why their mins are SO MUCH better than the win8.1 results.

Anyone else ever have trouble getting BF4 to even launch on Windows 8.1? Installed fine apparently - just will not launch through Origin or by double-clicking either BF4 icon.
Works fine on Windows 7 and it's not an Origin/EA problem as I tried Crysis 3 (also through Origin) on Windows 8.1 and had no issues.

I've repaired and reinstalled both Origin and BF4 with no luck. Installed all DX/Windows/Redistribute files/updates. Uninstalled/removed (with DDU) and reinstalled GPU drivers. Turned off Overlay in Origin.

Anything i've missed?

Thanks guys.

I had this EXACT problem - gave up on win8.1 for a lil while - then my method was simple:
Go to win (winning) 7 and copy the whole folder to my 2nd HDD - then go to win (fail) 8.1 and then paste that folder into the BF4 folder.

It then magically worked.

So: Try getting rid of the folder (copy/paste it to another location) - then re-start the download via origin and then close origin. Then paste that folder back in.

So I have to install BF4 and launch it on Windows 7 FIRST... save the Windows 7 version of BF4 folder that actually launches and put that on a backup drive.
THEN reinstall Windows 8.1 and paste the Windows 7 BF4 folder back onto my Windows 8.1 Drive? You have to be kidding me. Sorry about the caps but ffs, Lol.

I do appreciate the solution though and will give it a try when I can be buggered reinstalling Windows 7 then 8.1.

re-installing? No not at all - I thought you had both win7 and win8.1 on separate drives like I do.

In that case - if nothing works (try looking around on google) - if nothing comes of it - then just simple try to:
Move BF4 folder out of the origin one (on your win8.1 desktop for example)
-Then open origin
-Start BF4 download (you won't have it installed anymore thus download will start from scracth)
-Wait 3mins for download to do its thing
-Close origin (whilst it's downloading -> don't cancel the download)
-Paste the BF4 folder you had on your desktop back to the origin one
-Open origin
-You'll see the download finish and "ready to play"
-However, close origin again
-Re-open origin
-Now it will say :"Bf4 installed"
-Then check for updates (make sure everything is up-to-date)
-Do a "repair"
-Then try and launch BF4

If ALL of that still doesn't work - redownload BF4 from scratch.
There's NO NEED to install win7 or win8.1. That's got nothing to do with it.
It's most probably linked to origin going full retard.

I've had the issue 2x: on win8 and win8.1
I don't know what it is, but on win7 works flawlessly.

My brother uses 8.1 for BF4 and it's flawless for him. I'm still nervous myself. As for bench marks on the new drivers, I'll be hitting those tonight and posting results.

I have had no issues installing & playing BF4 on windows 8.1 either.
