Lenovo Ideapad y500 with Windows 8 OEM but can't seem to upgrade to 8.1?

Please help. Trying to upgrade it from the Store but it is stuck at installing, it seems halfway through. Left it overnight (8 hours) but still at the same place. Tried again, 3 times already but the same result.

 

Then I tried downloading Window 8.1 ISO through official channels with success but when I try it that way it requires me to input my present Windows 8 product serial which originally came with the machine. But that didn't work because it is OEM. 

 

Ultimately I am trying to upgrade to windows 10 but I need to upgrade to 8.1 first.

Hi petelenovo,

Just so the other members have a better idea of what is happening, did you originally purchase the Y500 directly from OEM?

Hello,

 

The Windows 8 came with the machine when I bought it new.
