    My friend tried to install Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit on his Windows 7 Laptop.

    He turned it off, placed the Windows 8.1 Installation disc, boot from disc, and then proceeded to format his hard drive and he then tried to install Windows 8.1. He then proceeded to install Windows 8.1 but he instead gets error 0x80300001.

    Any help will be gratly appreciatsd and if needed, he will be ready to give additional information.

    Thanks for the fast reply. But I can't understand the following step, perhaps you might know what it means?

    When deciding on which hard drive to install, instead of installing to a blank drive, create a partition and format it first
