Windows 8 Hangs/Freezes Splash Screen

  1. #71

    I didn’t read this thread but from the topic I see I had the same problem. Sorry if you already knew this solution.
    After a long struggle tried like this and it worked:

    1. Put HDD to a newer PC (which is compatible with win8)
    2. Install win8
    3. Take out HDD and put it to the older PC
    4. No blue screen and boots up perfectly

    Windows installed but having trouble installing motherboard drivers (Asus A8N-SLI SE).

    Windows 7 Ultimate x64

    Bit of an old topic, but here's the solution that worked for me. If you get the blue screen telling you that your machine failed to boot multiple times, press 7 to disable driver signature enforcement. Boom. Worked.
