    Windows Media Creation tool error? HELP.




    This is the error I get everytime I try to install the windows 8.1 pro ISO to my computer. I cannot figure out why this is happening.

    That tutorial is exactly what I'm doing and it didn't help. Also my computer has more than enough space to download this so that's not the problem. It simply isn't letting me download the ISO with this program and I cannot figure out why. I have a wired connection through time warner.

    You are upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1 Pro, try upgrade assistant ? Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant - Download and Run

    Sometimes there are server errors.

    I need to put the win8.1 pro ISO on my USB. I'm building my first gaming computer and it won't have a optical drive so I need to put the ISO on the USB and boot it up from there.

    My HD has plenty of space.



    It just refuses to connect to the server so I can download the ISO.

    i found this seems legit as long as you have a valid product key Windows 8.1 Download ISO 32 / 64 Bit Free Official

    Use this to create the USB Bootable flash drive

    When i seen your first post, by your name i thought you were upgrading from Win 7 to Windows 8.1 Pro. See needing full version of Windows 8.1 Pro now. Purchased a key from Microsoft for 8.1 Pro. Doing this from the Windows 7 machine, but for another PC. This all correct ?
