If you bought a retail or upgraded you would have a couple more options when changing motherboards
and activating..

I bought the Win8 PRO upgrade key, what options do I have then? and how does it know it's on the wrong motherboard? can you use the same motherboard or does it use some unique code from the one you install it on?
post #302 of 848
I'm reinstalling Win8 as I do every year and this time however I'm getting extremely frustrated to the point I want to just throw every damn piece of technology out the window. I've never had this much hassle installing any OS.

Last install of Win8 I had my Razer BlackWidow keyboard plugged in (both usb inputs in usb3 ports), my Logitech G600 mouse in a usb2 port, the printer cable in another usb2 port and the sound inputs from the blackwidow plugged in. I had my SSDs in RAID0, with 3 other SATA hard drives plugged in. Install went perfectly fine except that I would have to unplug all my usb devices to get it to boot then plug them back in when it did boot. Never found a fix for it so I just kept doing that all the time.

Now however same exact thing to install, I get stuck at "Getting Devices Ready". No percent sign for progress or nothing. I've been Googling the past couple days to see what the hell is going on but all I find are posts about it from back in CP/RP release days and none of them have had problems I'm having. It's either stuck before devices ready or at 20%, etc.

What is going on I'm about ready to murder my rig I spent all this money and time on building.

TL;DR

Windows 8 either hangs at getting devices ready or hangs at the circle progress bar (infinite looping) forever.
Goes through the Expanding files, etc part just fine, in less then 10mins on a RAID0 SSD.

Right now it's rebooted and now at the WIndows 8 logo screen with the progress circle just spinning over and over again.

I've got No-Execute Memory protection turned on, I've got it set to RAID mode in UEFI. Got Windows Boot Manager as the first boot option, followed by Intel: Win8Raid followed by UEFI DVD RAM, etc.

EDIT: I just tried unhooking ALL my usb devices and using an old PS2 keyboard and went through the install again, gets through copying, expanding, etc just fine then the same old circle loading forever when it reboots.

EDIT: It's now hanging at Installing Updates -_-.

Run CMD as admin and run "sfc /scannow" it will look for and try to fix corrupt OS files.


Sounds like a bad windows 8 dvd/iso. Redownload a new one and reinstall if corrupt files are fund and non fixable.

Also, was your RAID 0 array visible to install on or did you need a driver to view it? You may have the wrong RAID driver.

Also, if you do reinstall use the MBR guide, not GPT.

I couldn't redowload it because the windows setup said my key wasn't valid for a retail install. I bought the OEM System Builder one.

But I copied the dvd files over to another dvd and burned it and it worked fine. So it was probably the dvd, but it works now.

My Gig Z68X UD5 has raid built in. I have 2 Sgate Momentus 500's set as raid zero & it has been bulletproof. Can your Asrock do this? Is there some advantage to the set up you are using? I get 13-18 second logo to Start screen boots. If you can do this, give it a shot. My stripe size is 128. I have choked the life out of it numerous times trying for higher clocks & it just keeps bouncing back. Good luck.

Hello Sean and all other contributors,
I have read most of the posts but am stuck with cloning a toshiba Tecra R950 W8pro to a Seagate Hybrid (SSHD) 750Gb XT drive. The clone is good but will bot boot. The HD lights are blinking, but nothing happens. A clean install from W8 Restore DVD's produces the same result (=not booting). I have tried all the settings mentioned secure/legacy boot etc but to no avail. Have I overlooked something?

Now Sean you wrote:
>Also, currently the only image software that can image GPT drives properly and keep partition alignment is the built in Windows 8 system image tool (link). If you guys ever get an issue with a system image
>restoration with GPT this may help. (link)


Does that imply that Acronis 2013, Paragon 12 etc cannot do the job?

Thanks in advance for any help,

Much appreciated.

I am not sure off hand. Is there a secure boot feature enabled in your bios? Maybe dibable it if you have it. You may have to reinstall windows 8. I'd make a separate thread in the windows section.

this may help: http://www.eightforums.com/performance-maintenance/21384-imaging-apps-support-uefi-gpt-secure-boot.html

I need to update that part. Paragon now supports GPT and secure boot i believe.

I looked at this based on acronis: http://www.pcpro.co.uk/news/379315/acronis-promises-to-fix-windows-8-secure-boot-bug

Hi. Excellent work there, Sean. I've a question though. In this link it says the most recent version has "RAID" in it, does it applies to non-RAID setups as well? Or simply select the one which doesn't has any RAID at the end.

Thanks.
