So, Windows 8.1 Preview won't install. Of course its a mystery where the install log is so I can't find any information on whats going wrong. Errors at "Gathering info". I was going to delete the download and let it redownload but of course its also mystery where it downloaded to. Any suggestions?

This is what I was getting too. For me I uninstalled Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Express, which had a FILESTREAM enabled instance running. After that the install worked fine.

Sad that it seems Microsoft's own software is always problematic/not-compatible.
