Do you currently have Windows 8 installed?

You might not be able to 'upgrade' a system with a current Windows 8 full retail version to a 'preview' version.

So you think the issue is I cannot upgrade a windows 8 to the windows 8.1 preview?

Doesnt seem to make sense seeing that the only way to get the preview is through the windows 8 store.

well after a little more digging its seems to be failing on one of the nvidia drivers nvlddmkm.sys  I have checked MSI support section and they dont even have a driver that supports the GTX770M that comes in the GT60.  It looks like the only place I can get the driver is on the cd that came with the laptop at the moment.
