Re: m6 win 8.1 install problems



See 4Monkeys' list of the drivers / software he needed to remove to allow the Upgrade to proceed  -- YOUR "removal" list might be different.


Monkey's experience illustrates that the need to remove anything that gets in the way of the Upgrade is absolute -- you cannot sneak past the error message; you have to remove whatever is in the way.


The hope is that after you do remove everything that is objectionable, that Windows 8.1 will either install native drivers or that you can recover / install the necessary HP drivers as needed.


As long as you have a Path back to where you started, you can assume that things will work out as desired.


Thanks to 4Monkeys for posting his results.


Good Luck!  If you like, post your results for your system upgrade.
