    Default Windows 8 installation hang in

    Hi,

    I am installing windows 8 PRO, but it seems to hang in several times. The install is going slowly. It hang in:
    1. when "loading files...".
    2. when I was at the screen to remove my current Win7 partition, and then create a new partition, this took forever. It hanged for like 10 minutes in creating a partition, before it finally continued with the install.
    3. Several programs I have, like the new O&O DiskImage for Windows 8, hang at "detecting drives".

    I believe you did not install from a DVD. Download the ISO file from a reliable, legal source, not a torrent, slow burn it to a DVD, then Custom install from the DVD. This should cure your installation problems. I have not seen a single installation, that when installed from a legal source in the proper manner with a good download and slow burn, to fail.

    Thank you, Medico! I agree with you. I am going to re-download the file. Hope everything will be ok.
