comment Is it possible to create a reference Surface Pro 3 with all the required software and capture to be deploy to 15 Surface Pro 3
You can do this the same way you would for any other OS deployment... using SCCM, MDT, or whatever imaging software you usually use. Do you have an existing OS deployment platform?

@RandytBaker you may need to refresh the page; I edited the answer I posted.

@RandytBaker OK I've added detailed instructions, give that a try. Hope it helps!

Flash drive is better. You're going to need a flash drive (at least 256 MB) and a separate PC with the same version of Windows 8 or 8.1. I'll edit my answer to have instructions.

What version of Windows is it? And does the computer have a CD/DVD drive, or do you have a spare flash drive around?

@RandytBaker so it's going through the "repairing" screens and then it gets stuck on a blank screen with nothing showing?

Could you specify the model of the laptop? When you boot up and it "tries to repair itself" what does it say exactly? I'm assuming it's not an issue with the screen itself being broken if you can see some sort of "repairing" message during startup?

@pulsarjune that was not a quality edit. The post needs a lot of work and you just added one tag which isn't even relevant. If you read the post you'll see it says "a bluish blank screen", which is different from bsod which is an error message screen. Please work on making better edits.

Nice! I wish I'd known about this years ago.

comment How do I reverse the DLL hack done by UxTheme Patch?
@Ramhound if you look at the revision history, he didn't completely change the question, he edited it to more clearly address the issue at hand. Editing a question to improve it is a valid and encouraged response to critical comments and downvotes. This seems quite reasonable to me, and notifying a user who is engaged in a comments conversation about a question that the question has been edited seems quite reasonable as well.

comment How to apply group policy settings to specific local accounts in Windows
@Pacerier if you don't open it through mmc, it'll apply the policies to the whole computer. When you open through mmc, you can choose whether to only apply them to a certain account.

comment Hide Win 8.1 “tip” about “Switch between apps”?
Hey @rudolph you flagged saying your answer was edited with "spam keywords and hyperlinks" but I'm not seeing any recent edits. Is it possible your computer got some kind of toolbar or plugin installed that's adding spam links to pages?

comment How do I press Ctrl+Alt+Delete in VirtualBox?
@Pacerier I had 826 reputation points on May 13th, 2010, and at that time suggested edits weren't a thing, so there would not have been any edit button available. Back then the only way to view source was to know the URL to see the source view, there was no button for it exposed in the UI.

@Matt if you read all of the comments and answers here you'll see that's already been very thoroughly covered.

comment Why can’t Windows 98 be installed on latest computers?
I think the better question is, why are you trying to install Windows 98?

Do you have any keys on the keyboard you don't often use?

This isn't an answer, it should be a comment.

comment USB flash drive not working or is appearing as an empty disk drive, Disk Management reports “No Media” with 0 bytes size
@JakeGould ultimately you should respect the wishes of the person who originally wrote a post if there's disagreement about an edit (unless we're talking something completely inappropriate). I agree though that heading formatting shouldn't be abused to make text stand out (it should be used for headings in long posts), and I think your edits were appropriate.

comment Can I configure Firefox to only show images when purposefully clicked on?
I have edited your question pretty heavily to ensure that it remains an on-topic question for this site. There is no way to ensure that you will block all adult content, so the only solution is the one you already identified: to only allow content to be shown when you specifically click on it. I have therefore changed the question to fit that. If you'd like you can further edit it, just make sure it remains focused on the technical content, not your motivations for doing so.
