    Having some trouble installing on this tablet. It worked fine on my other computers. I tried installing from a USB drive and got " setup failed to initialize the working directory". Then tried upgrading directly from the media creation tool site and got "something happened" error sometime aftr it completed downloading.

    Any ideas?​

    I got the same error while installing Windows 10.
    It started installing Windows 10 and after 50 % of process completed It just went back to Windows 8.1.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    I was finally able to get it to install. I copied the Windows 10 setup files to a SD card instead of a USB drive. I put the SD card in the tablets card slot and it installed without a problem. If you have an SD slot then you might want to give it a try.
