Windows 8.1 install

Microsoft wants to reinstall windows 8.1, and it seems that there is nothing I can do to stop it!  I can delay for a very short time, but I don't know how to stop it.  Why I want to stop it?  Because the 2 last time has itself installed after it ends my PC wouldn't boot Windows.  I tried to fix it through the app of cmos CPU, forgotten today, but twice I had to do a full system recovery... from scratch, including the re - download all my games etc...

Someone please tell me how to stop Win update 8.1 to settle. It is not in the update box to hide, but a large banner on screen tells me it's going to happen, and my options are only for as far as I can see is delaying it temporarily.

Help!  Dovahkiin


It is not Microsoft who wants to install the update.  This is a bug in Windows Update, which does not recognize the fact that you have earn 8.1 installed.  There are a lot of things we can try.  However, your best option is to contact the Microsoft Customer Service to see what they have to say.  They should be able to help to easily.

    Hello, I tried to update from Windows 7 to Windows 8. I followed all the instructions to remove all applications were asked, but, unfortunately, I received an error message from Windows 8 (Windows 8 not installed).

    My computer is a C855 (PSKCCE) I saw it cared about the Toshiba product for the upgrade list.

    Do you have any suggestions?

  • Boot Camp Windows Installation 10 - "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. It's the GPT partition style.


    I tried to dual boot Windows 10 alongside OS X El Capitan on my iMac 21.5 inch i5 end 2013. I have followed all the instructions in the Boot Camp assistant, restart, choose the yellow 'Windows' drive to boot from, but when I get to the Windows installation, enter the product key and language, and then select the partition (0-4, the partition Disk Partition) it tells me that "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is the GPT partition style. »

    So I found this answer: How do I install Windows 8.1 on Haswell MBP

    But then I received the same error.

    Tried this:

    But fdisk TPG allow me to change anything, as the SIP is enabled.

    Tried to disable SIP via a command line in a terminal in recovery mode, but got an error-bash: command not found csrutil.

    So now I'm stuck on all fronts. Any ideas?

    Thank you


    1. your iMac end 2013 supports the facilities of BIOS/MBR and GPT/EFI.

    2. the legacy BIOS/MBR method requires a hybrid MBR.

    3 EFI/GPT is recommended for your specific model.

    4. you can use the GPT Fdisk steps in your link to make your drive a GPT disk only. It is not enough.

    5. you will need to convert the FAT32 partition space using the following OS X Terminal

    diskutil eraseVolume free disk0s4 FREE

    This will return an error, because free space is not associated with disk slices.

    6. at this point, use the USB installer created by the wizard of BC, boot from it and hold down the Alt/Option key and select Boot EFI (not Windows). Point to the portion of the free space that you see after the + 620 MB Recovery HD. It will separate into a small (128 MB) MSR and the rest as MSD (NTFS).

    7. do not install W7 in Boot EFI, because it has some difficulties.

    8. when Windows is installed, and BC drivers are not installed, run setup.exe from the Bootcamp folder.

    9. If csrutil is not found, you are in the recovery of the Internet, because your local Recovery HD is corrupted. The rescue of the failure of the local recovery is restoration of Internet. Your must be on El Capitan. There is no csrutil (or SIP) before El Capitan.

  • I want to uninstall Windows 8 and install Windows 7

    HP ENVY m6-1125dx Notebook PC

    My laptop came with Windows 8. I really don't like Windows 8, it is too restrictive. I want to uninstall Windows 8 and install Windows 7. How to go? Where can I get the operating system and driver software.

    Should I buy Windows 7 separately? Or can I use the same key?

    Before installing Windows 7, can I suggest an idea?

    I had the same problem: I'm a Windows 7 user who bought a laptop Windows 8 and don't really like the Metro user interface. It is half cooked for desktop/laptop computer, several apps to not scroll horizontally with the touchpad, etc, etc.

    But what I did install a simple program called "Debut8" ( that still allows me to go right at the part 8 Windows desktop and use it as I have Windows 7. The advantage of this approach is that you get the benefits of the internal improvement of Windows 8 (some improvements in performance on Windows 7, etc.) and do not have the hassle/cost of installing Windows 7. You can also try a GPL program called Classic Shell ( So far I am happy with debut8 as a solution.

    Anyway, worth before going through the cost and difficulty of installing Windows 7.

    Do you have other accounts of users on this PC?  If you install this update from the main account?

    You should get the number of the update of the updated history list and then download the file here: Microsoft downloads.
    If sure that nothing else is running, and then install the update manually.  Give it a try and let us know the results.

    Can I switch from Windows XP to Windows 7 by installing Windows 7 without uninstalling XP?

    Yes, and in fact you must do in order to qualify for the upgrade price.  You must realize, however, this update of XP to 7 involves a "custom installation" - that is, you must save your data first (on external support) and to reinstall all your applications after that Win 7 is running.

    Under certain circumstances, installing Windows 7 might create a windows.old file, but it's not clear to me what is stored in memory in the transition from XP to 7. you will certainly be able to run one of your older applications without having to reinstall them.  See, for example,

    To hide an update in Windows XP, just go to the Windows Update site and uncheck the update and click on the + sign next to it. At the bottom of the explanation expanded the update the checkbox to hide this update become active and can be selected, thus masking the update.

    Then, you need to remove the update from the temporary folder:

    Stop the automatic updates service

    Click Start, choose run.
    In the run box, type services.msc.
    Click OK.
    Right-click the automatic updates service.
    Click on stop.
    Stopping the service will take a moment.

    Delete the content of the download folder
    Click Start. Choose run.
    In the run box, type %windir%\SoftwareDistribution
    Click OK.
    Open the download folder.
    Delete all the contents of the download folder.
    Close the window.

    Start the automatic updates service
    Click Start. Choose run.
    In the run box, type services.msc.
    Click OK.
    Right-click the automatic updates service.
    Click Start.
    Starting the service will take a moment.

    By removing the contents of the download folder - you have removed all downloaded

    Now, the next step would be to configure Windows Update in order to warn only rather than automatically download and install updates. In this way, you stay in control.

    Click Start, click run, type sysdm.cpl, and then press ENTER.
