Can't upgrade windows 8 to Windows 8.1


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to help my friend with his old hp desktop pc, but I can't seem to upgrade his os to 8.1. I'm using official microsoft ISO. Anyone could help?

Windows 8.1 could not be installed. Computer has been restored to previous state as it was before windows 8.1 install

i5-4590 is definitely 8.1 compatible though.

Yeah, sure! That's the issue with being vague. The machine I'm writing from is a i7-3770K, which is older and perfectly capable of running 8.1 x64, too.
But when you speak of "old", I, for one, think of way older machines. Anything able to run 10 x64 or debian buster x64 doesn't quite fit "old desktop" in my perverted mind, at least. Sorry I misunderstood you! :)
