    Can't Install Windows 8.1 Upgrade From Store

    Brink or someone; have Windows 8 downloaded 8.1 from thee store. Everything was fine until it got to configuring personal settings and that reboot just hung with the splash screen and the hour glass tuning for an hour. Second cold boot told me Windows 8 was being restored with this error message.


    Any solution to this? If the only answer is to attempt an ISO clean install I guess I'll wait for the final release of 8.1.

    Thanks guys. Again, great forum.
