    I've heard that win8.1 likes to ninja-enable secureboot. You could try fiddling with that if you have that on your system.

    I had the same issue. Followed every step I could find on the interwebs.... including disabling hybrid boot.

    In the end, I discovered it was my keyboard. Windows 8.1 just doesn't like it being plugged into a USB3 port.
    It worked perfectly fine with Windows 8 for the past 12 months. The very moment I install 8.1, after restarting Windows or turning back on... it would freeze before the login screen.

    Even tried firmware updates for BIOS, etc.. Just a really odd cause.

    I presume it's something with the USB3 on my MB, and Windows 8.1 not liking it with certain devices. Now im booting without issues, with a Mouse plugged into USB3 and Keyboard now plugged into USB2........

    I think win 8.1 does not like USB 3 at all. Consider this: I have 2 systems with win 8 and 8.1. The USB 3 and ESATA is ASMEDIA. In win 8, both work without problem but esata requires driver.

    In windows 8.1, it is nothing but problem. I connect an external Seagate USB 3 hard disk. It makes a noise confirming that something is connected. But no drive letter appears in This PC!!. Going into disk management reveals the hard disk and I have to add drive name to get it usable. Then I disconnect/remove the USB 3.0 external disk, and reconnect again. The problem repeats and again back to disk management. Similar is the case with esata.

    In win 8 and win 7, this problem does not happen at all.

    Win8.1 likes my asmedia integrated usb3 just fine. Perhaps it's your chipset that is sub-par.

    I second that, i had this prob when i first installed 8.1 but it s gone now. Culprit most likely chipset driver.

    I guess the following should be made clear:
    1. I have a windows 8 image with intel chipset driver, ASM 106 sata driver (for esata). Do not install usb 3.0 asmedia driver as usb 3.0 works out of box in win 8.
    2. In win 8.1, I have asmedia 106 sata driver, and asmedia usb3.0 driver. Yet it gives that problem of disappearing drive names for esata and usb 3.0 disks.

    I find the drive problem in win 8.1, but in 5mins when I restore to win 8, that problem disappears. Where is the problem then.
    In defence of win 8.1, I can only say that asmedia's sata/usb3.0 drivers are not yet out for win 8.1 (at least I could not find them). The win 8 asmedia drivers give an error on win 8.1 but install anyway. But if win 8 had no need for usb 3.0 drivers, then so should naturally be win 8.1. What I get in win 8.1 is intermittent appearance/disappearance of esata/usb 3 disks. I guess my 1 year hardware is not suited for win 8.1 after all or I have to wait for whql asmedia drivers.
    Even NVIDIA GTX560, win 8 got the display resolution of my monitor out of the box, but in 8.1, I need to install NVidia drivers.

    Your problem occurs when you try to install usb3 drivers on windows 8.1. Windows 8 and 8.1 have universal USB3 drivers and any usb3 drivers you install will fubar your system.
    Remove them.
