hello everybody
when I try to install windows 8 pro on a new formatted drive
it installs up to the first reboot when the computer locks up
at the "press any key to boot from dvd". if I press any key it starts
to install again from the beginning, if I dont press any key the computerstays locked.
any suggestions will be much appreciated as I am 81 years old and depend on my
computer for on line banking etc.
thanks for any help

Hello,

Try this 1

Provide us more information regarding "computer stays locked". Do you mean

after reboot you failed to get the Windows Screen ?

The process gets repeated if you press any key during the prompt

"Press any key to boot from DVD...".

When it restarts, go to BIOS --> Set the first boot device as "Hard Drive" -->

Save the settings and exit from it.

Good Luck
