Windows 8 help

i was trying to install windows 8.1 preview and it downloads fine but when it says "gathering info" it hangs at 71%

reply ASAP
When you say 'hangs', have you tried leaving it for a while?
Lozzy is your system in the list below:

Windows 8.1 Preview isn't currently supported on some tablets and PCs with newer 32-bit Atom processors, including:

  • Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2
  • ASUS VivoTab TF810C
  • Samsung ATIV Smart PC
  • HP ElitePad 900
  • HP ENVY x2
  • Fujitsu ARROWS Tab

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. :)
