Being one for the bleeding edge I woke up this morning nice and early to begin downloading the preview of Windows 8.1 from TechNet.
The installation took approximately 35 minutes as I was running off an ISO.
While the upgrade itself was very smooth and everything appears to be still installed and working fine – my dual monitors were not showing up.
My current setup uses a Targus docking station as described in my post about the Surface Pro being my desktop device.
Long story short – if you are installing Windows 8.1 Preview and use a docking station or device that utilises DisplayLink technologies then you will need the beta drivers from DisplayLink – available for download here:
