    Unable to Reinstall Windows From DVD.

    Hi All, Win8.1 in on my PC and I'm trying to reinstall. After inserting the Win8 DVD I get to a screen that reads, "What Needs Your Attention". And that's it. Nothing. I just ahve a blank white display box with nothing in it - for an hour. Has anyone had this propblem before? Does anyone know of a solution? Many thanks.

    Problem Solved. I hit DEL when rebooting which accessed the DVD installation. All fine.
