  • Hi jobogan,

    The servers are busy. The issue may be on Microsoft's end. You may need to try a fourth or fifth time. Considering that preview versions usually cause problems on some systems, make sure you have reviewed the FAQ's HERE.

    If the system currently is running Windows 8, be aware that, "...Microsoft says that people who download and use the preview version of Windows 8.1 will have to reinstall all of their Windows 8 and desktop apps when they install the final RTM x86 version of Windows 8.1; Windows RT users will also have to reinstall all their Modern-Windows Store apps for their own Windows 8.1 upgrade.
     If Windows 8 users decide to simply wait until the final version of Windows 8.1 is released, and bypass installing the preview build, the good news is that they won't have to reinstall their apps. "
