"The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in"

In my case it was read only network share. After I copied the ISO image to Desktop and repeated the procedure, everything went well.

In first case (when experiencing this problem), Windows Setup just couldn't enter last phase (setting up local account) and it ended with no accounts at all. In the second case, Windows Setup properly went through all phases and I ended up with working system.


I can confirm that installing Windows 8.1 Pro from an ISO placed on Desktop worked for me also. Previously I had the ISO on an external HDD.
Also if you have a Security App that has a "Safe Files" option like Bitdefender has, it would be a good ideea to disable that prior to installing.
