    So i have an Asus Sonicmaster laptop that runs windows 8. Recently ive been getting pop up windows of windows wanting to update from Windows 8 to 8.1 and i was putting it off for some time until it popped up again without an option telling me "dont show again" but instead it gives me an option for when i would like to start the update. At the time i was busy using the laptop so i had put it to start in "4 hours". 4 hours had passed and nothing happened, so i was done with what i was doing on the laptop and just shut it off. A few days later when i was using it again it suddenly turned off and started up with the Asus logo, once it got past the Asus logo the screen would be blank and it would flash "Reintsalling previous version of windows" for a split second and then shut off just to go back to the Asus logo and Loop from there. Did it fail to update?, is it a glitch that can be fixable?, did i mess up on shutting it down?

    The installation of 8.1 failed and it can't revert back to 8.0. Hope you have backup of your data.

    Do you have an install DVD or Win 8.0? Insert that, boot from it and choose Repair on the second screen.

    If you don't have the DVD, then you can download the ISO from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows8ISO

    Then insert a blank DVD, right click on the ISO file and choose Burn to disk.
