So i went to she shop from the windows button menu thingy and clicked windows 8.1. It then told me that i first had to download some updates in order to download 8.1 (when i say SOME updates i mean 180 updates which took some hours) everything was running smooth, the updates was finished when i later got the message that some of the updates went wrong so i had to restart the computer. So i restarted it and the message "Failure Configuring Windows Updates Reverting Changes DO NOT TURN OFF COMPUTER. First i was like ok fine i'll wait.
