    Windows 8.1

    OK, I can see that I'm going to have difficulty in assisting you because I can't walk you through some Windows 7 items. Anyway, I still think you need to verify your existing BIOS configuration (UEFI or Legacy) and then choose the appropriate installer on boot. Now, to do this, you will have to select the proper installer from either your DVD or USB device and your chices may look like this on the boot menu:

    Boot menu:

    USB (name of stick)
    UEFI USB (name of stick)

    With that said, I am convinced you do not have the correct installer selected because the classic signs of that (from my experience) have been either wifi not working or the auto restart/reboot does not work throughout the entire installation process. Good luck and hope someone else can assist you better.
