    Problems installing 8.1 on HP laptop


    Hey y'all, I'm installing 8.1 on this laptop, and the install (setting up) hangs at 82%. I severely need a fix for this--I've been working on it for 2 or more days

    Are you using Media Creation Tool to create install media ?

    Are you using and ISO that you downloaded from MS? You should probably use the HP Recovery Media to do the reinstall -- if it came with Win8.1 originally.
