    Windows 8.1 Update: Impossible to install


    I have tried pretty much everything to install the latest Windows 8.1 Update, including fixes for Windows Update, manual installation, etc. Literally nothing has helped. I have now spent at least 10 HOURS trying to get this botched update to install. Is Microsoft firing all their QA guys to save money or something? This is literally the absolute worst update I have ever seen. To make things worse, now it is stuck on undoing changes and has been like that for several hours.

    I hope Microsoft gets a lawsuit for this, because apparently I am not the only one having this issue. I literally could have reinstalled Windows, all the drivers, and all my programs in less time than I have already spent trying to get this pile of garbage update to install.

    The above post was not helpful unfortunately. My serial does not work with Windows 8.1 installer.

    Take a look at this, see if it helps. Not a specific 8.1 update 1 problem, but may address it by fixing the DISM and SFC problems.
