comment Can I use VHD file to boot VMWare?
Even better, create your new VMware VM using "Custom Settings", select "Existing Disk" during setup, and when prompted for the VMDK extension, change the extension to *.* All Files, select the .vhd, and you're good to go. Boots right up off of the VHD file. Windows 81. w/VMWare Workstation 11.1, booting XP Mode's vhd - just did it now.

comment Windows 8.1 UEFI x64 is not able to boot-up UEFI Images
For the record, the ESP partition (where the EFI binary/bootstrappers are stored) should be FAT32 to be "sharable" across Linux and Windows. They are also usually hidden from Windows normally (you can see it in Disk Management). The original question has the author trying to boot an additional EFI firmware located in his ESP partition - as EFI allows for multiple boot strappers in a single partition. Just pick what you want. I, like the author, MUST use the Windows Boot Manager in 8.1. My reason is for the Touchscreen it supports on my tablet with no Keyboard!!!

comment Windows 8.1 UEFI x64 is not able to boot-up UEFI Images
Setting 0x10100003 seems to have BCD update the UEFI firmware as well to add a new entry to the boot menu (which works with my specifications). But, I continue to get 0xC000000D errors though. I can boot from the UEFI Firmware options. But, Windows doesn't like the Fat32 partition with the gummibootx64.efi file. I MUST use Windows 8.1's Boot Manager because of touch on my tablet - no virtual keyboard at power on!

comment Is there a work around to configure brightness or color on a DisplayLink monitor?
Please, oh please post a beta/alpha/"use at your own risk!" version of this! Just switched from a desktop to my Lenovo Helix with the USB 3.0 Dock and 2 monitors on DisplayLink. After 2+ years of f.lux... Oh, MY EYES! I'm willing to try anything.

I'll give it a shot and will report back. I saw the secedit and was wondering if it would do everything, not just security policies.

comment Which driver do I need to install in order to dim screen on Dell
It's called "Dell Feature Enhancement Pack", as stuckey said. The M4600 is one of the most complicated systems to install drivers for, and I've setup 100s of servers, DAS units, etc. I seriously cannot believe the amount of drivers available, and the order you need to install things with.
