How do I get passed a stuck Please Wait screen?

    How are you burning the disc? Why not try a flash drive using Rufus, and burn it for UEFI/GPT which is what Win 8/8.1 normally uses?

    Microsoft Windows 7

    I checked my bio. It has windows 8 64-bit.
    My Lenovo G580 came with pre-installed windows 8. I don't see windows 8 key anywhere on the laptop.
    I chose the option 1 and downloaded windows 8.1 64-bit.
    I saved the file to USB flash drive.
    After the downlaod is done, I plugged in the flash drive to the laptop and restarted it.
    The lenovo screen pops up, below it, the spinning circle. I don't see any other options.

    Don't go directly to a flash drive, create the ISO.
    Then use Rufus to create the flash drive for UEFI/GPT.

    Windows 8


    I have an Acer Aspire V5-531. It gets stuck on "Please Wait" after the Acer logo goes away. From here I can't do anything except move the mouse. I runs with Windows 8. It can't take any CDs so that's not an option.

    On the back of the laptop I find:
    Aspire V5-531-10178G1TDakk
    MFG date: 2013/09/09
    S/N NXM2CED0203361A22F6600
    SNID: 33610705566

    I've tried all the short commands I know about. I have tried to remove the battery. Nothing works...

    I have absolutely no idea how to fix this, is there anyone out there who knows how to fix this? And if so, please in the easiest way since I don't know that much about computers etc...

    Thank you in advance!!
