I was able to reproduce this as well on a lab machine at work that we
have Windows 8.1 x64 Update 1 loaded on.  It seems to throw the error
as soon as it goes to switch to installing the files and as suggested
only happens with --no-admin set.  There are no files unpacked as a
result.  There is no BLODA on my test machine as it is a clean install
save for updates in itself.  I'm going to test again on a VM later on
when I get a few minutes to run the install though and verify.  The
setup.log provided no appreciable information beyond what was provided
by the OP however if there is a way to up the verbosity I am more than
willing to re-run the install.
