    KYHI,

    I tried the 32bit version. I'll retry with x64. CSM is enabled in BIOS.

    Not sure if this will help, but I have attached a picture of dispart in cmd.

    Your Disk is UEFI_GPT

    Disable csm support.. But before you do that that - place the file in your boot disk - rename to cmd - and run boottype.cmd from the same cmd window as above Attachment 57980



    Also how are you selecting your boot media? F12 boot menu? If so your boot media is listed twice - once under uefi and again under legacy/csm > you need to select media under UEFI

    When you get to the partition screen - remove every partition and allow windows to install to the unallocated space..

    First two pictures show windows system recovery - you do not have a windows system recovery image on disk..

    the third pic is the partition screen - remove every partition - then proceed with windows setup

    In the last picture of your setup media - you are missing a file.. (my pic does not include it as I create my media a little different) >> MediaMeta.xml

    Pretty sure the missing >> MediaMeta.xml << is your 23% problem..

    Answer - I know how to disable CSM in the BIOS, however can you provided me instruction on how to place the file in my boot disk?

    Also how are you selecting your boot media? F12 boot menu? If so your boot media is listed twice - once under uefi and again under legacy/csm > you need to select media under UEFI
    Answer - I hit Esc while booting up and change the boot settings in BIOS

    When you get to the partition screen - remove every partition and allow windows to install to the unallocated space..
    Answer - I did this however I am unable to delete the 9xxGB partition. In addition, the other partitions went to an unallocated partition which I was unable to delete. I was unable to use the unallocated space to install on.

    First two pictures show windows system recovery - you do not have a windows system recovery image on disk..
    Thank you.

    the third pic is the partition screen - remove every partition - then proceed with windows setup

    In the last picture of your setup media - you are missing a file.. (my pic does not include it as I create my media a little different) >> MediaMeta.xml

    Pretty sure the missing >> MediaMeta.xml << is your 23% problem..

    I am using the link you provided in a previous post to re download and install 8.1 x64. I will burn it to DVD and retry....4 hours to go for the download.

    you can copy the files from the dvd to a folder on your desktop and here is the missing file, add it to the folder.. And then copy those files over to your dvd drive and reburn the dvd..

    a 4GB usb is a lot easier

    KYHI,

    Should I have the txt file contain this:

    <?xml version="1.0"?>


    -<mc>




    -<media>


    <chunk>client_en-us</chunk>


    <taskguid>0773bf96-ed21-417b-ae3d-f4f69a3b0332</taskguid>


    </media>


    </mc>

    OR

    @echo off
    Wpeutil updatebootinfo
    for /f "tokens=2* delims= " %%A in ('reg query HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control /v PEFirmwareType') DO SET Firmware=%%B
    if %Firmware%==0x1 (
    ECHO ================================================================
    ECHO. THIS COMPUTER BOOTED VIA "BIOS MODE"
    ECHO ================================================================
    )
    if %Firmware%==0x2 (
    ECHO ================================================================
    ECHO. THIS COMPUTER BOOTED VIA "UEFI MODE"
    ECHO ================================================================
    )
    PAUSE
    GOTO :EOF

    Dude - your killing me..

    boottype.cmd.txt gets renamed to boottype.cmd - when run from booted media - it tells you what mode the pc booted

    the mediameta.xml was the file you where missing on your bootable dvd

    boot from the media and when you get to the partition screen - remove every partition and allow windows to install to the unallocated space.. This MS version will read both windows 8 and windows 8.1 product keys.. You have to use a pc with win7 or better to download the media..
    This all should of been fixed in post 6 - as quoted above.. 22 posts later and we are still not there
