    WIndows 8 MAK upgrading fails 0x101 0x20017


    I have an asus u43f laptop currently running windows 8 pro with a MAK. I downloaded the 8.1 pro iso from the vlsc , ran the upgrade advisor which flagged 3 items which were taken care of, but the upgrade still fails. after the reboot, I see the frown face, the a message about a driver violation, then it goes back to 8 and spits out that code. Any idea how I can figure out what is causing the issue?

    I have also run the windows driver verifier and it did not detect any issues
