error A;0x0000008E prevents reload

trying to update OS to latest and got this error.  Tried to reload OS and continue to get same error.  Have tried direct reload through BB/upgrade same result.  Tried with win 7 and XP.  Same error . battery in, out, etc, same result.  Whole message is:

Software update encountered and errror

An error has occurred while updating your device's software

Unspecified error encountered [A:0x0000008E]


is this a hardware problem?


phone recently replaced one lost and possible confusion in BB Link over old and new PIN?
