    Error during updating process.


    I am trying to re install 8.0 using the option to re install all programs to Factory Settings.
    Downloads 99 programs and when it tries to do the updates it fails and then starts the reverting back to original programs. This seems never to finish.
    I had done an Image backup so that I could go back to it in case of a failure.
    I did not do the option to wipe the disk and then install to factory.
    I also could not get my machine to use the Recovery DVD's. But did use the screens that ask you questions about recovery.
    I did the recovery twice and it failed both times and never did get back to the first install.
    since there seems to be no reason for the failure in the 99 updates I am at a loss of whether I should try again and wipe the disk clean for C:/

    Why would you go back to 8.0 from 8.1! If you are using the recovery partition in the computer to restore, chances are that when updating to 8.1 screwed up your recovery partition. If you are trying to use the recovery DVDs be sure to change the boot up sequence in the bios for the DVDs to boot up first.

    As to the 99 updates, do them in batches to find which one is causing a problem, maybe 5 at a time.

    I first tried the restore from the recovery partition.
    I was not aware that you could recover from 8.1 so I started with the DVD's created when I bought the All in One.
    When I hit the first error it allowed me to correct it and then I downloaded 101 updates and they all went in without a problem. I then went to the store and upgraded to 8.1 and then since I had a purchased copy of Pro I put that on and everything isOK.
    thank you for replying.
