Hi everybody,

I am trying to install windows 8 CP version on my desktop. But it always freezes when the beta fish comes. Then it shows me a blue screen, comig with the following message:

"Your computer ran into a problem and needs to restart.

If you'd like to know more, you can search online later at this code:

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

It's collecting error info and will restart in: X seconds"

Anyone got a solution for this problem? Thanks.

This can indicate a faulty location on the HD.

From the installation DVD go to the Repair options and run a Command Prompt

Type the following: Chkdsk /f /r (please note the spaces in front of the /)

This may take a while. It will scan and hopefully repair any faults it finds.
