comment Major clock drift while computer is awake
But again, I think the RTC is just fried - the new battery has no difference in behavior of the RTC. Can't get it to restart right.

comment Major clock drift while computer is awake
Thank you! This is totally it. After removing all power sources and draining the capacitors by pushing the power button, mine starts again for the first boot, but the second boot it's frozen again. But this completely explains it. I guess the Windows behavior of occasionally resetting the software clock to match the hardware clock is new to Windows 8 which explains why I wouldn't have noticed the problem on Windows 7 (ONLY on cold boots, which were infrequent). [BTW, the M4300 takes a standard CR2032 (note which side gets the red vs black) then duct tape instead of the spot welds]

comment Is it possible to add an existing Azure VM to an Azure Virtual Network?
+1 - And while this is a stupid pain in the butt and I don't understand why such a drastic measure is needed, it wasn't so hard or time consuming.
