    Default Windows 8 installation not successful problem

    Hi guys,

    I need your help in this win 8 installation headache because I can't boot my computer from the DVD and i've just got my copy of Windows 8 in an ISO file format.I burned it to the DVD. Before this, the installation of XP and win 7 all were finished by others, i don't know what to do next.

    thank you for your time and i am waiting here for your help.

    Had a similar problem. Tried several times to install from the Windows 8 that I downloaded but each time I got "Windows installation was not successful". Next I burned the ISO image on a disc and tried installing from the dvd but got the same message. Then I unplugged all cables that weren't required (network, usb, hdmi, & 2nd speaker) ran the downloaded file from the hard drive and Windows 8 finally installed OK.

    Quite often extraneous devices can cause problems if connected during installation. Not only if Windows trying to install, but it has to find drivers for all these devices as well.
