    This might help:

    How to fix the error

    You could also try, in administrator command prompt:

    sfc /scannow


    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth


    Then the sfc command again.

    ??? What version of 8.1 were you trying to install? 32 bit, or 64 bit?

    W-8.1, 64 bit is very finicky, as to what motherboard it will install on. 8.0 was not so bad.
    (Some) Mobo's that ran 8.0/64 quite nicely, will not run 8.1/64 at all. The install may just error out.

    I ran into that problem recently.

    Good Luck to you!
