    Install stalled at Updating Registry Settings


    I am attempting to install the Dev edition of Windows 8 for testing with multiple monitors. I have it installed on 2 test boxes and 2 laptops but on the higher powered system the install stops at Setup is updating registry settings. The only major difference on the box is that it does have dual nVidia 8800GT video cards. Has anyone else installed Windows 8 on a system with dual video cards?

    Windows 8


    Yeah, I have those video cards. It worked fine for me to install it, but I can't do more than 2 monitors. If I add a third it has issues. Specifically IE displays as all black on the 3rd monitor.
