I purchsed my Windows 8 Pro upgrade today. The download and initial install process went ok. But when the laptop rebooted for the first time I get the following error:
A disk read error occured
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to reboot
When I do this, I keep getting this prompt. I've had this laptop for 3 yrs and never once have I have a disk read error. Right now I have a laptop that I can't do anything with as I don't have any Windows 8 Pro media i.e. the upgrade process was done using the online upgrade. the upgrade has completely failed. I don't even get the option to be able to safe boot Windows 8.
Any advice on how to sort this mess out would be good. :(
