Not everything went according to plan with Microsoft's new Windows 8.1 launch. Apparently, for some customers with the Surface RT, the new update "bricked" their device. Luckily, Microsoft is aware of the issue and already worked out a quick fix for it. Here's a statement from them,
"Based on our investigations of a situation customers have encountered updating to Windows RT 8.1, we can confirm that as of now this is a Windows update issue only affecting Surface RT customers,” Microsoft said. “While only less than 1 out of every 1,000 (or less than 0.1%) Surface RT customers who have installed Windows RT 8.1 have been impacted, improving their experience and ensuring their systems are fully operable as quickly as possible is our number one priority. We have made recovery media available for download here along with actionable guidance for affected customers. We continue to work towards making the Windows RT 8.1 update available in the Windows Store again and apologize for any inconvenience. Further updates will be provided as they become available."-Statement from Microsoft
