    OK, so i re-downleaded Win 8, installed from the download screen ie no ISO burning, left it running and came back to find a blue screen "YOUR COMPUTER RAN INTO A PROBLEM AND NEEDS TO RESTART" search online for "DPC WATCHDOG VIOLATION".

    I have had a look at a few sites but nothing that tells me what is going from and how to fix it.

    Download the iso again, but extract it using say 7-zip first before running the setup. I was amazed how long the install took, some 50mins before done. I think it took that long for me because it install over existing OS AND i choose to keep all settings preferrences.
