I did some sys admin work, last night: transferred the recovery partition on my HP Envy X2 to a USB drive, deleted that partition, and used the Windows Store web installer to install Windows 8.1 Preview. Belarc Advisor gave me my Windows Key. When 8.1 RTMs, I’ll probably have to re-install 8.0 from that USB to get the final 8.1.
I’m hoping the version of SkyDrive that comes with 8.1 will allow me to sync a micro SD. I may have to make some symbolic links to fool the OS into thinking that additional space is on this 64GB hard drive.
I’ll probably change my Office 365 subscription from P1 to Small Business Premium. I’ll, then, be renting Office from MS. Next year, I might rent Windows (with Intune) too.
