    upgrading from 8.0 PRO MAK to 8.1 PRO 0x101 0x20017

    downloaded the 8.1 iso from my VLSC. I ran the upgrade advisor which flagged 3 items which were resolved. The upgrade fails after the first reboot. I see something about driver violation then it disappears. once it gets back to the login, it tells me the upgrade has failed 0x101 0x20017. have tried disabling firewall, av windows defender etc. made sure all drivers were updated, but still no go. I have looked at the log files in the hidden folder, but nothing leaps out. any ideas?

    Question About 8.1 MAK ISO Install

    My install of Win 8 Pro uses a MAK and doesn't seem eligible for an upgrade from the store. I can also download the 8.1 ISO. When you installed from the ISO did all of your installed software and settings survive?

    Thanks so much.

Upgrading from W8 to W8.1
