    Freezes at first boot, but boots normally on reboot/reset

    hey everyone.. i installed windows 8 consumer preview x64 on my desktop yesterday.
    the problem : when i turn on the desktop, it gets stuck at the boot logo.. so i have to force shut down or force reset/reboot.. and it boots up perfectly well this second time. this happens everytime i turn on the desktop.
    i googled about the problem but didnt find any useful results. is there a way to fix this? an help would be appreciated.

    my desktop config : amd athlon dual core x2, 2.5 ghz
    3 gigs of ram, nvidia 9500gt graphics chip

    Hi, welcome.

    Please download and run CPU-Z then make screenshots of the SPD and Memory tabs. After, attach them here to a new post.

    Probably a good idea to run the program in the Crashes And Debugging subforum, from the top most thread there. Attach what that thread asks for as well, please.
