Trying to install Windows 8.1 on my MacBook Pro. Worked fine last time I tried. Now, however, using the same DVD, after `Press any key to boot to CD or DVD...`, I'm taken straight to a black screen with a blinking cursor and nothing is happening.

I've seen similar cases, ie. Black screen with only mouse cursor on it - Windows 7 instalation Solved - Windows 7 Help Forums - but they usually occur after the installation welcome screens etc., or after the install itself has succeeded.

I just ran `fsck` and found no errors.
