Unknown Windows 8.1 Installation Error (0x61636932)


#1
Hello everyone. I've had this issue for almost a year and a half now. I have been trying to install windows 8 with every way possible, on my main desktop computer without any luck.
I follow the standard procedure. Make a USB Flash drive bootable, reboot, boot from it. After it boots, it shows the Win8 logo, the loading circle, and then, just before the language selection screen, it throws a blue screen for a moment and then the computer restarts. The code is 0x061636932, which is a completely unknown one. Last year when i googled the error code i got no results. Then i created a thread in another forum. Now, if you google the error code, you'll get my thread and another thread from a swedish forum. Bottom line is this:
I have changed motherboards, RAM sticks and GPUs. Tried without any drives except one that would have been used for the installation (SSD and HDD), different flash drives (both UEFI and Legacy boot), DVD-ROMs burnt from a variety of different ISOs (Both Win8 and 8.1, and lately Win10 preview). BSOD persists.

Note that Windows XP, Windows 7 and Linux Mint work completely fine on the same computer. I've been running Windows 7 on it for 3-4 years.

Thanks in advance for any help! :)

Have you ran Windows Upgrade Advisor Windows 8?
Are you trying to install Windows 8 Preview, I believe you no longer can after Jan 15, 2014

I'm trying to install Windows 8.1 Pro. I got them from msdn.
It's the same thing with every single Windows 8 or 8.1 version.
I haven't ran the advisor but I believe it runs when you upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 8 (which I tried to do with no result).

Good question about techassist. Looking a little closer, I see this there as well:

Posted on Nov 10, 2014 11:45 AM, Windows 8 Forums | www.eightforums.com

Which is the date and time of your first post in this thread. No idea what's going on. I'll ask Brink if he knows.

I'd say go ahead and run the advisor, see what happens.

Do you have mixed RAM? I see you show Corsair and Kingston. Try removing all except one type so no mismatch, see what happens?

I've tried with only one of them, using each by itself. Nothing.
Also, i think that upgrade advisor runs if you run windows 8 setup inside windows 7 in order to upgrade right? I downloaded and ran Windows 8.1 Upgrade assistant, i don't know if that's the advisor you say, and said there were three compatibility issues. First that i won't be able to play DVDs, probably because now i have the Windows 7 N version, second that i won't have a sidebar and last that my computer does not support secureboot, which is disabled in the UEFI.
