Restarting my host computer fixed it. I guess because the 4k Resolution had been applied and I hadn't restarted yet. Logging off probably could have worked too.

You can use "Classic Shell", it can be found here: http://www.classicshell.net/ Not only will it replace the sad excuse for a start menu in Windows 8, it will allow you to customize it to your heart's content.

As I stated in my comments, and as others have posted, Windows 8 will make it easy. First off, download and install Firefox; it uses it's own proxy settings if you tell it to, without requiring Admin rights. Once it's installed, set it to either auto-detect a Proxy, or to use No Proxy, depending on your setup (Options->Advanced->Network). You can also tell ...

The simplest solution would be to use another computer. Connect your external drive to it, and insert a large enough USB flash drive or DVD (a standard single-layer DVD should be fine, or a 4GB flash drive) into the computer, then download and install Windows USB/DVD Download Tool. Run the Download Tool, select your Windows 8 ISO and click Next. Next you'll ...

A off-the-wall way of doing this would be to set the proxy settings under Control Panel>Internet Options to a fake IP address (ex: 0.0.0.0) and then use a browser (or browser extension) to set your proxy to "None" for that application only. That way, all Windows traffic by default will timeout or fail unless you specify in an application to use no proxy.

maybe this is too late, but I think I have found a solution to this (at least on my machine it worked after this fix) -- It is related to the firmware of the SSD not the SSD itself, so after updating to the newest version of the firmware and restarting it, bitlocker magically work :)

AFAIK, this behaviour can unfortunately not be disabled on Windows 8.1. It is part of Microsoft's "Modern UI" and core to 8.1. It does suck, but note that dragging is only triggered if the mouse is within a couple of pixels of the top of the screen. If you find you've accidentally triggered dragging the entire desktop, just release the mouse and try again. ...

Disabling the Logon UI is not possible on desktop or server operating systems in any way supported by Microsoft. At best, you could hack it away. Since it won’t speed things up, the screen would simply be blank during that time. Not exactly what you’d call user experience. It might be possible with Windows Embedded. This behavior also consistent with ...

The default refresh image is Windows 8 in your case. But you can update that to a custom 8.1 yourself. For details see here. Then you have to set that as active - see here. However, you are probably better off making your own images because refreshing with the refresh image does not bring everything back. For that I recommend free Macrium.

The files in the SXS folder have to be the right ones for that version of Windows. It will not work with an SXS folder from the 8.0 disk when the PC has been upgraded to 8.1, then you need the SXS folder from an 8.1 disk. I didn't find this made clear anywhere in documentation and the error message "The source file could not be found" is at best misleading. ...
