Well, this motheboard is suppose to work with win 10 or win 11
Why use win 8.1 ? You can install Win 10 using the installation key you have for win 8.1

I have been using win 8.1 since last 4 yrs.. so i thought better install something that is familiar for starting up.. what might be causing the issue?

The absence of specific drivers for win8.1, as you can see here
