Not booting in dual mode.

    Not booting in dual mode.

    OS Win 8 Beta - Win 7 Ultimate
    64 bit
    Asus MB
    12 GRam
    Nividia Quadro FX-1800

    I have Win 8 on a drive with Win 7 in another drive. I have it set up so the machine starts to a dual mode screen.

    The last two times I have turned on the machine, only to have the fish hang.

    This could be a driver issue, since it did not happen before. However, I have not added any drivers for some time.

    Once I reboot, the machine goes back to normal.

    Any comments?

    If you do not have any files on it yet, do a reset install. Otherwise go for a refresh install. These options can either be found on booting from the Installation disc or in the Settings window.
