    My install freezes in win 8.1

    I am trying to install win 8.1 Pro on my Toshiba laptop. My media is an ISO file direct from Microsoft. Everything goes smoothly until I reach the, "Installing Updates" phase. At this point, it stalls/freezes and that's that. Any ideas, suggestions, or brilliant fixes? I'm very frustrated and need help in a BAD way. Thank you!

    Disconnect from the internet by removing the network cable if one is connected and turning off your Wireless.
    Once the install completes reconnect to the internet then Activate.

Install Fast? Install.wim missing, found Install.ESD instead
Hi, I am trying to install the W8 CP using the tutorial provided on W7F. Instead of the install.wim file, install.esd is present. I attempted to use imagex on that file, but it did not work. Is there another way to install it fast?
