    Update problem with 8.1


    I upgraded from Windows 7 to 8, using an installation disk to a SSD drive. I have tried numerous times to upgrade to Windows 8.1, but always get the error "Sorry, we couldn't complete the update to window 8.1 we restored your system etc.". Not sure what to do. I tried to refresh my system still no love. Help!
