I Cannot update Windows 8 to Windows 8.1

Asked By 60 points N/A Posted on -

I have Windows 8 installed on my Dell Inspiron 4050 laptop so I wanted to upgrade it to Windows 8.1 and I downloaded ISO from the Microsoft website and when I mount the ISO file it gives me the error file corrupted. Then I again tried mounting with both PowerISO and UltraISO too. I have re downloaded the file but no luck for me. Can anybody help me?

Hi Abrahamahartman,
The steps to upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 are as mentioned below:
1) Backup the files present in Windows 8
2) You must have 3000 MB of free space to install Windows 8.1 on the system
3) Go to 'Start' screen, Click 'Store' tile


4) In the Store app, Click 'Windows 8.1 update'
