    win 7 and win 8


    Hello I can't get 8.1 to install no matter what I try. ISO or app store no dice it keeps bsod it gave me an err that said "system thread exception not handled iastorav.sys" when trying to install from iso. When trying to install from app store it downloads runs and when it restarts the fish pops up then it bsod's and reverts back to win 8 saying could not update with a error code of 0xc1900101-0x200c

    Maybe it would be good idea to install 8.1 on "virgin" windows, without any third party software, specially AV, there's no vay in this short time everybody could synchronize everything. That's what I'll do when I get ISO of it. Btw. is ISO available yet, oficialy ?

    well I can install it on a separate drive just not on my triple boot raid volume which is odd because i can do it with another win 8 install and triple boot

    Please see the replies at the link below for the same thing you posted already. You have choices, but you just need to pick one.

    With Windows 8.1, can Microsoft get its mojo back?
