    Place the bootable Windows 8 disk back in the computer and choose the refresh option.

    Just because Windows 8 offers an option to physically upgrade from Windows XP doesn't mean
    that it will be 100% trouble free.
    Ensure that you have all of your relevant data and programs backed up.

    Instead of upgrading from XP, I would choose to Custom Install and format during the installation. This will give a more pristine installation, IMO.
