Windows 8.1 Preview now available for UK language installs

Last week Microsoft released Windows 8.1 Preview (see my review) and I was really looking forward to trying it on my Surface RT however the preview wasn’t available for Windows 8 devices with the UK language pack installed. There were a few work-arounds but wait no more as Microsoft have issued a fix to the preview so that it can now be installed on a UK device. TDL Show host Jason Coombes installed Windows 8.1 Preview on his Surface RT tonight and said it installed fine.

I installed Windows 8.1 Preview on my tablet PC and performed a clear install on another machine today and have to say I was impressed with the install process. When I installed it on my 2nd machine today Windows asked me if I wanted to copy my settings from the other machine which I selected and it set up apps so I didn’t even have to log back in to apps like Twitter.
