Microsoft pulls Windows 8.1 update from Windows Store after it bricks some devices

Last week, Microsoft released the much-awaited Windows 8.1 update. The first major update since the OS released last year, brings with it a lot of new features and improvements. But the latest version of the OS hasn’t had the best of starts and the Redmond-based company had to take down the Windows RT 8.1 update from the Windows Store after complaints of bricked devices.

According to VentureBeat, some users have been complaining about the Blue Screen of Death when trying to update. Others have reportedly got a Boot Configuration error, which shows a message— “Boot Configuration File is missing some required information.”

Microsoft has responded to complaints and has issued this statement.

“Microsoft is investigating a situation affecting a limited number of users updating their Windows RT devices to Windows RT 8.1. As a result, we have temporarily removed the Windows RT 8.1 update from the Windows Store. We are working to resolve the situation as quickly as possible and apologize for any inconvenience. We will provide updates as they become available.”
