    As I’m not a newbie to Windows, I’m going to download and read this (hoping there might be a german translation available). I own my SurfPro2 about 6 weeks and run into several issues with Firmwareupdates that don’t install, fails in boots and store issues. That’s not very amusing as there is no service to reach. I refreshed the device, so at the moment here is only Chrome running on the device while I’m awaiting the next issue. Hmnz!

  2. I hope you find something useful in it, Thomas. 🙂

    Thank you, but nothing I haven’t already known by now. Do you know if there is any option to sideload a firmware-update and install it to my machine.

  4. No I do not – I am sorry. Since I don’t have a Surface, my experience or knowledge about it is near-minimal.
