    Upgrade from windows 8 to 8.1

    I am new to this forum, an 86 years old computer enthusiast.
    My problem:

    The upgrade from windows 8 to 8.1 stops after the stage "setting up for a few more things" and reverts to windows 8.
    Any help & comments will be greatly appreciated.

    Hey mate,

    Update windows in control panel, and follow this tutorial (completely): SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

    Make sure your video card and processor have the latest drivers. Restart again, and see if following this tutorial helps you out any:
