    Blank screen loading after install

    Hi. I just installed Windows 8 (x86) on my desktop PC, and despite the installation was successful when I start the PC after the Windows 8 loading screen I get a blank screen.

    I made a quick video that might help understanding my problem.

    I also tried to Google to find a solution but couldn't find any.

    Thanks to anyone willing to help me.

    PC details
    CPU: DualCore Intel Pentium D 940, 3200 MHz (16 x 200)
    RAM: 2048 MB (DDR2-667 DDR2 SDRAM)
    HD: Maxtor 6V250F0 (250 GB, 7200 RPM, SATA-II) totally empty formatted in a single partition
    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GS (512 MB)

    It may be a corrupted copy, why don't you wait for another few days and get the W8 CP version and try.

    Well I tried to install it twice and the second time I also did a hash check and the copy was authentic.
    Anyway what is this CP version and when it's coming out?
    And also thank you very much for answering .
