i'm trying to update my hp dv6-6156sl running win 8 to win 8.1. When i try to update the os with all kept when it configures devices (around 55%) i get a bsod with driver irql not less or equal error and windows revert back to my previous windows 8 showing at the end 0x101 0x2000c error. So i tried a clean install to see if i could fix it but i still get the same driver irql not less or equal error (on ntoskrnl.exe)

I tried to edit bios settings to see if there's something to disable but like almost all hp laptops it is locked so i can only enable virtualization, select boot order and change gpu between fixed or dinamic (none of these worked)

i found the dmp file with the error of the update:

How can i fix this?

Your "clean installation" step is confusing considering a clean installation is only possible with a Windows 8.1 license. Have you tried with no external devices plugged in and your graphic device driver removed from your system? Specific configuration information on your laptop is required –  Ramhound Nov 7 '13 at 15:29
    
With an custom ei.cfg file in the dvd or in the usb key you can temporary install windows 8.1 without license (of course you have to activate it when you finished). BTW it's a laptop, i only replaced the hdd with a vertex 3 ssd and i had everything unplugged and in the clean install there's no driver installed yet. here are the specs: h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/… –  user1143745 Nov 7 '13 at 15:37
    
I can only read English. I asked for the specifcations in the question for that reason. –  Ramhound Nov 7 '13 at 16:21

the dump shows that your Wifi driver (netr28x.sys) causes the issue:

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000000, memory referenced
Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
Arg3: 0000000000000001, bitfield :
    bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
    bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)

disable the wifi device during install or integrate the latest driver into the DVD.

Thanks! I actually had to manually remove the card because the bios was limited, install windows 8.1, put back the wireless card, start windows in safe mode, install the driver downloaded from mediatek, manually update the driver from the windows list and now it works.. thanks! –  user1143745 Nov 7 '13 at 23:13
