8.1 preview to 8.1 (not downloading?)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
attempting to update my windows 8.1 preview to full release. i have it downloading/installing? from the store, but it doesnt seem to be downloading. it just sits @ 0% and the logo is just an empty box with a little X(instead of icon)

whats with this? im hoping i dont have to do a clean install.

update: after a while i hit pause/resume and it went to 50%, after it got done and attempted to install it rebooted and gave me an error, saying it failed to install the new version of windows and that it reverted to my old version. the error code it gave me was 0x8007045D-0x2000C.

upon googling the only anecdote i found was someone 'fixing' their issue by using /chckdsk /r and trying again the next day.

anyone have any clues? i currently have windows 8.1 pro preview installed, trying to update to 8.1 pro. i installed windows 8 initially from a usb stick then updated it to the 8.1 preview via their stores download.
