FINALLY UPDATED WINDOWS 8.1!!

Found help on Facebook from a guy I don’t even know, after now trying for 10 days to install the latest Windows 8.1 update it finally succeed :)

James Monroe writes:

"Anyone with Windows 8/8.1 having issues with the mucked up‪#‎KB2919355‬ update? The following fixes the Component Store Corruption KB2919355 causes:

The following DISM commands must be given in the chronological sequential order of:

First:
1. dism /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup
2. dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
3. Restart
4. sfc /scannow
5. Restart

Second:
1. Create bat and run as ADMIN:

net stop wuauserv
rmdir /s /q C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore
rmdir /s /q C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download
net start wuauserv

2. Restart

‪#‎WARNING‬:
this was not a fast process… component cleanup took almost 5 hours. Prior to the above sequential steps, I did an install repair (used iso to “upgrade” Win 8.1 Pro to Win 8.1 Pro) as a last ditch effort to get rid of the corruption… it didn’t solve it btw. The insane amount of time could have been due to the install repair, or it could have been because of whatever‪#‎WindowsUpdate‬ mucked up the first time around trying to install this update.

‪#‎ADVICE‬
run the commands from a bat for an unattended fix. For whatever reason, if these commands are run, but not in chronological sequence, the corruption will remain.

Now, back to the update ‪#‎Microsoft‬ mucked up (KB2919355)… it still fails after the above lol Bright side: no more corruption in Component Store =] lol

ADVICE:
Download the updates included in KB2919355 individually and install… or do as old Van Winkle did and find a tree.

***For those not savy, ‪#‎DISM‬ is part of the Windows ADK and will require downloading and installing the ‪#‎ADK‬ from Microsoft’s website***

5 months have passed

Im a very private person but I will tell you that many AWESOME things have passed the last 5 months.

Just to mention a few:

New job.

Daughter started daycare.

Build both a Windows 8.1 PC and a Mavericks hackintosh.

…oh yes, and yesterday the wife and me bought a house, a real proper 154 square meter house!

So stay tuned for whenever I feel like sharing, many great things is bound to happen for AT0MAC.

Choosing the right keyboard is  a very hard task apparently…I currently own a Apple Pro black keyboard, a Apple Wired Aluminum keyboard and a Logitech EasySwitch bluetooth keyboard.None of them are really good… :(
First and foremost I absolutely love to have light in my keys, like the logitech have. Problem is that I for some reason cant get it to play nicely with my PC but works perfectly on my iPhone and Mac.
Then the Apple Wired have really nice silent keys and a good touch (as in they are not super easy to press down but also not too hard). I have pretty strong hands and fingers so it annoys me a great deal if a key is too easy to bottom out. Btw, Im using a black/clear silicone iSkin on this one to get the feel I am talking about. But has no light in the keys :(
Then the Apple Pro have absolutely amazing mechanical keys, but a really bad thing about it is that the keys are not lit :(

How to combine all of this - Silentness, good feel and light???
So far the closest I have come is the Corsair K95 with WASDkeyboards rubber dampers in the keys. Waiting to get my K95 keyboard swapped as I bought it yesterday but two of the keys were painted badly.For a topmodel that is not acceptable, so back it went. Also, have not received my rubber dampers yet, will be sweet with them in as the MX red switches are a little too easy for my liking (I wish they made the K95 with brown or clear switches…)Info about switches:

Btw, I have tried several MX switches: Black switch is too stiff on its way up, dont like the way it feels when it comes back up but like the way it feels to click it. I also tried Blue switches but absolutely hate the sound!Wish to try brown and clear, im pretty confident they would be perfect for me but not many keyboards use them :(
