    Install/Uninstall are stopping

    "Hello, World"

    I recently upgraded my Toshiba Portege R830 hdd to a Samsung SSD. I installed all my programs without any problem. One of these was Visual Studio 2015 Community.

    Yesterday I was going to install SQL Server 2012 Express and its intallation stopped at about 50%.. I waited for about 2 hours...
    Then I tried to unistall VS2015 Community, to install the 2013... Unistall stopped at 5%. I left the laptop on all night and the process didn't change!

    Before I tried to install SQL, I had to reboot and install all the updates..

    Now I tried to install all the drivers for my laptop (again) and it stops in every proccess..

    I thougth in formating the pc, but installation media for windows 8.1 is currently down. If I press the link to create an usb with win8.1, I get a 404 message....

    Any help?

    Edit: I'm using windows 8.1 Pro
