    8.1 update doesnt work/crash


    After I successfully updated my laptop to 8.1, I wanted to update my desktop too. But it doesnt work. The installation crashes after a long wait time during reboot at some point, for example last time, I tried twice, at 82% (preparing settings) or something. A orange screen appears (something went wrong) with a sad smiley and it reboots. After the crash reboot it hangs again and when I do a reset, it will restore the Windows to 8. What could be the problem for this? How could I debug into it? What kind of log files should I post here from the $windows.~bt folder?
