    Windows 8.1


    I just put my new hard drive in my advent Roma 1000 laptop. Put my windows 8.1 pro c.d in then pressed f12 to start the boot.
    Windows open up and I choice my country and select install. It's starts installing windows then I get past the getting files ready for installation then
    Features then installing updates then finishing up.
    Then it starts to restart and goes back to the start. Been threw it 3 times. It's like it carnt go any further
    What should I do?
