Solution to the UUID problem when deploying Windows 8.1 using ConfigMgr 2012 R2

When deploying Windows 8.1 Machines using System Center Configuration Manager 2012 R2, me and as good as everyone ever done a Windows 8.1 deployment using CM2012R2, has seen the issue. The issue is that the first time a user log in to the deployed machine, it gives an error:

The Group Policy Client service failed the sign-in.
The universal unique identifier (UUID) type is not supported.

The problem has been seen from time to time but at last there is a solution to this elusive problem. The solution or workaround actually, is provided in KB2976660: First logon fails with “The universal unique identifier (UUID) type is not supported”.
