    After clean install, windows restarts with error.


    So my windows 8.1 installation became corrupted, so I backed up data and did a clean install after deleting all partitions.

    After the install on the first boot, right after the process of "installing apps", it showed an error message saying an error occurred causing windows to restart, and created a memory.dmp file.

    I just want to make sure this installation is stable before continuing to update to 8.1, especially after my previous issues. Can anyone tell me how to figure out what went wrong from this info? There are also some errors in the event log that I don't understand.


    Edit: The errors came after install of Windows 8, as that was the key I had.

    Edit: Windows failed to dowload and install 92 updates with error code 80248007

    windows update


    had same problem after restore updates fail.
    Go control panel>windowsupdate>ViewupdatesHistory>troubleshoot.
    should correct the error and let you download those 92, and then update to 8.1

    Suggest that you install those 92 updates in batches of 5 let's say, you may find the offending update and hide it until a solution is found.

    After following hawk mans suggestion I did get the updates to install, but when powered on, boot stops at the blue and black windows splash screen
