I don't know if this is the right arena to use, but I could not find the free clinic. When I try to upgrade from Windows 8 to 8.1, I keep getting the message across the screen inside an orange band- Couldn't Install Windows 8.1. You can't install Windows on a USB flash drive from setup. The GPU is a 3rd gen i7 on an Asus motherboard. The C drive is a 500gb Samsung Pro. I have been given tips about changing the registry, and changing the hard drive management (disastrous). Any suggestions. My computer go to guy is stumped. This is not a rare problem so there must be a solution, although Microsoft has not said or done anything.
Also, sometimes this orange band shows up telling me not to remove the USB drive until windows shuts down.
Thanx, in advance.

You're supposed to upgrade from the Store.
