windows 8 doesn't install

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hi

I need help to fix issue with win 8 install with USB men stick, I get to the part where it copies the files and does first reboot, but instead of going forward with next step, it start the first install screen again after reboot where i need to put the key. already tried so many times.

something is wrong with my system but I cant' figure it out. the install works on another PC.

i tried updating bios to 701, that didn't help

put usb in, started the install process ok
installer copies files, and does first reboot
I removed the usb with win 8
I get a screen with "getting device ready" it does another reboot
now it comes with black screen and does nothing for 6min, and i finally find the issue, it was my monitor plugged to second port on video card, continuing the install now, it's working Yeah.. smile.gif


Thanks Shadow for you help, strange i didn't have to remove the usb on another PC, it should NOT try to boot with installer, but it does anyway.

spent 6 hours fighting with a cusotmers computer today that was exhibiting similar issues.
windows 8 does not seem to like monitors or display drivers...
