windows 8 does have a few bugs which crop up that can usually be fixed with a batch file or regedit but one of my machines crashes every time it resumes from standby - a common fault going by the internet. so I figured I'd try a refresh - which whether done from the dvd or the desktop fails on 95% I can reset it which wipes the lot and also removes media centre but that's not what I'm after. I macriumed the drive to restore it if stuff doesn't work or to go back after experimenting with it. currently using linix to clone files off a live copy back into the windows partition to restore apps and programs similar to the windows.old trick. the aim is to get it right then set up a custom refresh file for an easy restore in future. any ideas gratefully received or should I wait a couple of months and see what the 8.1 blue update might do?
