+Jess Nut I believe that it is in 8->8.1 as well, if not then it is probably a side effect of one of the recovery options. If memory serves I deleted it off one of my 8/8.1 machines, but my memory may be faulty.
On the upside, at this point things are firmly approaching the point where two joyus things are true:
A.) I want to be able to reinstall W10 easily. Hopefully that's make a USB and dd image it to my backups without running out for a bigger stick.
B.) If 8.1->10 leaves my last Windows system FUBAR or unfixable by Friday, I'm gonna be living "Windows free" more than ever before.
Along with being a lazy S.O.B. that's probably cause enough to just upgrade instead of making a fresh backup. Only thing that has changed since the last one was updates.
