Thus proving you're totally clueless and firing without thinking!

Not a very good argument. You say if a patch lands that renders you unable to load in safe mode in win8 it would prevent you from patching the patch. Then go on to say with windows 7 you can just log into safe mode to remove a broken patch. What happens if the exact thing happens in seven, and you can't get into safe mode to remove the patch? It is the same thing. Both would result in more serious actions in order to resolve. If a patch can prevent you from entering safe mode in 8, same can go for 7. If you can enter safe mode on both, the only difference would be having to wait on MS to release a fix for 8 instead of simply removing the patch till they fixed it in 7. Though this would only be for metro patches to begin with. Normal desktop modes patches can be removed just as easy as in 7.

This isn't to say I like it though. We should have the option of removing ANY patches, Metro or otherwise. Given time I think they will patch this option in, hopefully at least. I just didn't think that you provided a fair comparison with the above.

The whole point of safe-mode is that you can get in with the bare minimum. And the point is, even if you get into safe-mode with BOTH OS's, Windows 7 will let you uninstall the update from safe-mode. Windows 8 does not.


Incredibly handy command biggrin.gif

Except you didn't read it, did you?

I already tried the sfc /scannow without any success. I've also been trying to refresh but it won't let me saying that the drive is locked. I made a usb of windows 8 but won't let me refresh also. Automatic repair doesn't help too. I don't want to do a clean install if possible. Whats the solution for the drive locked?

Sorry if this has been asked but I seem to be getting nowhere on my own. I was on Windows 7 then upgraded to 8 Pro. Everything worked fine until the past 2 days. I was updating and restarted windows. When I signed back in, Windows 8 Metro startup would close and goes straight to desktop.

Is this the only source? I am wondering if this is intended, or due to the user / user's configuration.

I see no reference from Microsoft stating that this is supposed to happen in the event of a MetroUI failure. Also note, his Metro UI was broken by a patch. One he won't be able to remove.

From a business point of view it's a damned disaster
post #35 of 36
I don't think MS ever counted on Win8 being adopted massively by business and enterprise. The UI is obviously designed around consumers for entertainment purposes (not to mention the fact that MS is probably acutely aware that most businesses still run XP).

That said, I think any OS should allow users to install and uninstall patches on their systems as they see fit. This seems to me to be a short sighted move on MS's part but its not such a big deal that we need the usual suspects to chime in with the always helpful "Win8 sucks" comments... rolleyes.gif
