    Default Windows 8 freezes during install

    Hi all,

    I would like to install windows 8 release preview. However it keeps freezing when I restart my computer during installation. Then all I see is a black screen, windows logo in the middle, and the little dots circling at the bottom.

    then this screen it just stops and freezes

    Can anyone help?

    How did you try to install? Where did you get the ISO file?

    Hi Medico, I get the ISO file from microsoft website. Also, I burnt to DVD before installing. I think I did right steps.

    Some have tried to remove the installation DVD before the initial reboot, which allowed the installation to complete. When you get to the spot where the PC will reboot automatically, eject the DVD then let the installation continue. Let us know if this works.
