    When you say 'hangs', have you tried leaving it for a while?

    Lozzy is your system in the list below:

    If your system should be compatible then have you considered burning to disk and doing a clean install ( to be honest this is probably the best way to install windows 8.1 imo)

    You can find the iso files for download here:

    That's great! I did wonder if you needed to leave it longer... Glad things worked out. :)
