    If you are connected by Wi-Fi, try plugging in Ethernet cable. Possibly you are dropping the Wi-Fi at some point during the update.
    You may want to try downloading the ISO file to a USB stick and updating that way. see Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create[1]=General Tips

    Are you trying to upgrade or do a Clean Install (format)?
