Microsoft was forced to pull the Windows RT 8.1 update late last week after users started complaining about their Surface RT tablets being bricked. Something in the update was rendering the Windows tablets unbootable, and Microsoft was left scratching its head and scrambling to fix the issue as quickly as possible.
The problem now seems to have been solved as Microsoft has released a Windows RT 8.1 recovery image. The problem is, as well as being a rather large 3.7GB download, the recovery process isn’t exactly simple.
Alongside the recovery image download there’s a 2-page 400k PDF with instructions on what you need to do to get your tablet working again. First up you need a USB drive with over 4GB of capacity and a PC running Windows 7 or later. You then have to format the USB drive with a FAT32 file system and then copy the recovery image you just downloaded to it.
With the recovery USB drive now created, you need to power down your Surface RT if it isn’t off already. Then:
- Insert the USB recovery drive into the USB port
- Press and hold the volume-down (–) rocker
- Press and release the power button
- When the Surface logo appears, release the volume rocker
After that your tablet should load the recovery software from the USB drive. This is where the instructions Microsoft provides are essential. The recovery process involves typing in commands at the command prompt, restarting the tablet, and then typing in more commands at the command prompt while in administrator mode.
If you follow the instructions to the letter, by the end you should have a fully functioning Surface RT tablet again without any data lost, only now running Windows RT 8.1.
After reading through the PDF and the steps involved, I’d suggest anyone preparing to perform the recovery procedure go make themselves a very large coffee first.
