    Has anyone installed the 8.1 Preview yet on their RT?
    Installing mine now. Hoping to see Outlook RT on reboot!

    Any thoughts/feedback on 8.1 Preview on RT?

    Im going to try this update on another pc and see how it runs. Would love to install it straight away on my RT but this is my main computer now and I don't want to have problems with it.

    Let me know if installing the preview wipes out all the pinned Explorer webpages on the start screen.

    I installed 8.1 on my Surface Pro. The Installation worked flawless.

    One thing that i notice is that i can get my 5 tiles back. It sticks with 4, even after installing the 5 tiles hack.
    The other one is that live tiles on the picture app is not working.
    Didn't find any other issues yet.

    This thread is about the RT version is 8.1. There is another for the SP.

    At least it gave a sensible error message. TechNet forums have various threads - some say that a full wipe and reinstall selecting EN-US fixed it. I'm not sure I fancy a full wipe and reinstall just for the preview.
