Windows 8.1, stuck on 'Applying PC settings'.

Hi. I've been running windows 8 and have been trying to upgrade to windows 8.1, for what have been the most frustrating hours of my life. I have uninstalled most of my 3rd party drivers, and updated my Intel Chipset, and unplugged everything from the counter except Ethernet, hdmi, and power. When I reboot to finish installing 8.1, I get stuck at 'Applying PC settings', at 84%, to be specific. I would really love some help with this and will answer any questions you have about my issue. Thanks
