If with a LENOVO laptop/ultrabook you encounter:
FAILURE TO INSTALL when installing Win 8 Updates or the WIN 8 PRO PACK, then:
WIN + R | MSCONFIG | ENTER | SERVICES tab |
checkmark Hide all Microsoft services |
Uncheck ALL remaining services EXCEPT for those from INTEL | OK |
WIN + D | ALT-F4 | select RESTART
WIN + X | Control Panel | Windows Update |
Check for updates item in left-side list | go ahead and install the updates
After rebooting, repeat the check for updates!
Ignore any message that says that you are up-to-date.
Keep checking and installing until you finally come up dry.
Now the install the failed PRO PACK install:
WIN + PAUSE
click on the text to install additional features.
Be patient during the resulting install and restart.
This worked for me when all else failed.
Oh yes, I've left all of the non-microsoft and non-intel services unchecked.
That's just personal preference.
