comment Hosts file missing in Windows 8.1
Okay, you are right, it is not needed for normal OS operation, but it is checked for and used when found. Windows created hosts.ics an d renamed hosts to hosts.old for a reason. I think you should not have both hosts.ics and hosts at the same time

comment Hosts file missing in Windows 8.1
Of course the hosts file is used for normal system operations, maybe you were thinking of hosts.sam in older versions of Windows.

@user4847410 - Explain to use what administrative mode means to you, Windows doesn't have such a concept. Also what do you think safe mode means? Explain your problem better

comment How to install Win 8.1 to HDD as booting it from SSD?
Put Windows on the SSD, I'm doing that for years. The lifetime of SSDs is much better nowadays. If you ever used Windows from an SSD you never want to go back to a HDD.

comment How to check if a binary is 32 or 64 bit on Windows?
I'm on Server 2012 R2 and tried a few random binaries. Some 32bit ones show as Windows XP SP2 but others show as Vista or Windows 8. So this method is not correct.

comment Installing Hyper-V server on same partition as OS (windows 7)
Hyper-V Server is a different OS which you run dual-boot with your Windows 7. So either Hyper-V Server or Windows 7, never both. Hyper-V server has a very limited GUI, no Windows Explorer, no Internet Explorer. It just runs VMs. It also has limited graphics drivers, so if you know what you doing on the command line to set up VMs you can do that, but you can't really do your IE testing on the same machine. You may want to look into running those modern.ie VMs in a different solution like VirtualBox, that would run within your existing Windows 7

@MichaelKjörling - No, I don't know about any official statement about this. I wish I would. My answer is based on personal experience.
