    I would suggest you Re-Create the Windows 8.1 Installation Media - Link in my sig below..

    Boot your computer and press F2 or DEL (depending on your system) to enter into BIOS setup..

    Turn off (disable) secure boot..

    Then retry windows setup

I haven't installed anything lately and I can only think that it was maybe due to shutting down the computer directly from the power button (heard sudden shut downs could cause problems). I tried startup repair, I tried doing a "refresh" but it won't accept the cd, I tried doing a safe mode...
Here's a quick summary of what I think caused this issue. I was using the computer, when the power went out for like half a second, the computer ended up restarting, and while starting up, the power went out. When the power came back, I wasn't able to get past the Blue window's icon with a swirly...
I am attempting to install the dev preview onto a spare hdd to dual boot between Win 7 and 8. I have used the windows store tool to write the iso to a usb drive. I am happy that this is correct (a colleague has used the drive and installed successfully on a different computer). So far though...
