    I have a third party anti virus App. but I did disable the App and tried also.
    one more thing I would like to add that First time I could down load the ISO file and made DVD as well as USB files, but when I tried to run the same Setup, it gives error " Your Autorun.dll in not working".
    some more things also I would like to add are 1) earlier my store App was giving error message of "error code 80072f8f, after first time downloading .ISO file now my Store App. stuck on "Loading Store.... for 4 hours
    2) when I went for recovery with third option of refreshing the windows 8.1 Pro it use to stuck by error message " some files are missing and your window installation or back USB can provide the same". But now it give message the blabla file and app would required to download again and it went for refresh mode, then my PC got rebooted then it started updating file up to 3% and took more then 45 mnts and stopped with message that "it can not continue with refresh process and you have to re install windows again" when i did "ok" it undid the refreshed portion and restarted/rebooted PC to its position as it was last one. this thing happened 2 time.
    pl see this can help you to resolve the issue.
    my pc is sony make VPCL148FG

    RBV,

    Are you able to use another computer to download the ISO file from?

    You'll still be able to use it on your computer to reinstall with.

    So you already have the ISO file? That sounds like the error you get when you've used your key too many times and it gets blocked. It says this, right?

    We can't connect right now
    Check your Internet connection and try again.

    If you already have the ISO and your windows installation is in a state where installing from within windows is not an option, I would suggest burning the ISO to a DVD and booting from it, then doing a clean install. Best to back up your files first though. If you do a clean install without formatting your drive windows will save your files to windows.old but better safe than sorry.

    Yes, if you have the full installation media.

    If you create recovery media from the 8.1 upgrade download, you won't have the real boot.wim. However you will have winre.wim and install.esd. That is what is needed for refresh/reset. Can't be used for normal full reinstall as there are no windows setup files.

    There is a workaround for that also.

    If you then do the store upgrade to 8.1 it usually breaks the link to the original recovery process ( if you had one ), and does not leave you with 8.1 recovery media either.

    The sensible thing is to create your own 8.1 recovery media before it gets deleted. Therefore, if you did not start with 8.0 recovery media, you have the chance to create 8.1 recovery media.

    Is that clearer?
    Ah, I see. You were talking about the upgrade from 8.0 to 8.1. So if someone did that with an OEM copy, I'm assuming they would be able to install using the method where you use a KMS key then enter your real key?

    Be sure that you are not using the Media Center key since it will not work to download an ISO with. It'll need to be your original Windows 8 key.
