    Can't believe Lenovo tried to get $89 out of me for such a simple fix! Added rep to you.

    Also would you suggest not upgrading to windows 8.1 after this mess and wait?

    You might want to take a breather and do a little more up-front preparation before you try it again. Anyway, your y500 is on Lenovo's list of OK to upgrade to Win 8.1 and there are many new 8.1 specific drivers available, so the first thing I would do is download all those drivers to your USB drive:

    Drivers and software - IdeaPad Y500 Notebook

    Note that I didn't see any BIOS updates that are required so you should be good to go there.

    Next, I would start educating myself on the recommended way to upgrade a Lenovo laptop to Win 8.1 here:

    There should be some information available in their support center.

    Good luck!
