    Not sure I understand the question.

    You linked to where you got 8.0.

    I asked why you don't get 8.1 from there.

    Only one person in this thread actually tried to answer the question.

    I have run into this error on many systems using OEM media.

    Dropping down to SATA II can possibly fix the error. However AHCI seems to be more of a culperate.
    I have systems with factory 8.1 disks that run into this error. always at 57%

    Try and tinker with SATA power or speed settings.

    Reran the setup using another of the same exact OEM disk.. and soared right past that mark.
    i dont know what is being loaded but this is annoying. a different OEM may halt at a different %

    -oh and AHCI is OFF and MB is set to IDE mode. enable AHCI after win is installed.
