Windows 8.1 installation - unexpected installation error

I have downloaded the Windows 8.1 ISO, purchased a genuine key, copied the ISO to a usb, booted and started the installation. It appeared to proceed okay, but now it is completely stuck in a loop of errors with the errors as shown in the attached image. I either click OK or press 'enter', the computer restarts and then comes up with this error message again.![82118-windows8-install-error.jpg][1] [1]: /answers/storage/attachments/82118-windows8-install-error.jpg
