Windows 8.1 Update from Windows 7 Home Premium Failed To Install

Hello, I recently tried to update from windows 7 home premium 64 bit to windows 8.1. However when I came to the installation process it reached 100% then said 'Your PC will restart in a few moments'. Then a new window opened saying 'Windows 8.1 installation has failed' Please help I have tried everything I can think of. Thanks in advance - Corey :)

Yeah, I have seen it, I get the same outcome. Any more help is much appreciated! By the way the stage where my problem happens is during the install so just before i chose my settings and personalise.

You may want to try Clean Booting the system as described here
Before attempting the install.
And make sure that the clean boot includes disabling any Security Suite software especially any third party products.
