Strange Windows 8.1 installation failure - will not boot
Installed Win 8.1 and everything appeared OK.
However, when I attempted to restart the computer, it was impossible.
Got the suggestion for refresh, which I hate.
Would not boot, even with emergency cds (tried 3), and yes I did reset the boot sequence to make the DVD drive first choice.
Eventually, I decided to bite the bullet and refresh, because I could not restore.
I then used AOMEI backupper and was able to use a previous backup file on my external hard disk
Now, I'm back to Win 8, and receiving notices to update to 8.1
No way! Unless I can be certain of success.
