no expert when I have problems that show as an exclamation mark in device manager I have uninstalled the driver in question, restarted my pc and windows has found and installed the driver, that may work for you, if not I know there are people on this forum who will know what to do, hope it all works out for you

sorry, meant to say try a restart if you haven't already done that

Are you sure you mean drivers and not Hard Drive Partitions?

Details of your laptop would help.

I think you will need to reconfigure your Hard Drive. You will need a minimum of three partitions. EFI, System and Operating System. The W8.1 iso may be able to do this otherwise you will need some other partitioning software.
