Trying to install Windows Pro 8.1 Preview on HP Pav dv6. It is taking unusually long time to complete "personalize setting". It's been stuck in this mode for over 12 hours! Is this normal? Recycled power but it returns to the same mode.

No, its not normal. Sounds like you have a hardware conflict with Windows 8.1 – Ramhound Sep 6 '13 at 12:33
Any recommendation? How can I stop and retro to 8.0? – Kim Chang Sep 6 '13 at 12:47
There is no way to downgrade to 8.0 once you have upgrade to 8.1. – Ramhound Sep 6 '13 at 12:52
