8.1 install error 0xC1900101-0x40019


#1
8.1 install error 0xC1900101-0x40019 and 0x80070652 and Windows 8.1 installation failed and reverted back to Windows 8.0

I'm lucky the computer even came back to life. I have an Intel HD Graphics 4000 video card, so the review from ADRStudio replied on February 15, 2014 on page 18

could address this problem but I'm not so sure. I can't find the Win 8.1 drivers at HP for my machine, they only offer Windows 7 or 8.

I've been reading Latest Win 8.1 ISO "Breaks" System Image Functionality

and on my dual boot laptop with Win 7, this may be a fatal error when trying to install Win 8.1 because 8.1 adds another System partition and kills off the one I had been using.

Considering the overwhelming severity of this problem and how widespread & long-going it is, I'm gonna stick to Win 8.0 for now.
