    Okay I went thru setup ( personal, sign in, etc) it was taking a VERY long time to sign in. Like 10-15 mins still not signed in. I rebooted and the boot is very slow. Everything's slow in general. I got passed the windows spinning circle after a long wait no its a black screen. WTF.?

    Did you use a Microsoft account or a local account for login?

    Sure sounds like there is something wrong. Where are you now in the login process?

    What were the steps you did to do the install?

    When I install Windows 8 or 8.1, I delete all partitions from the booted install DVD. I do not create any partition on the drive, just click Next and let the Windows 8 installer create the partitions it wants. It then does a quick format and start copying files to the soon to be boot partition.

    This is the tutorial I usually point people to: How to Do a Clean Install of Windows 8 or Windows 8.1

    Check the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic tools or the built in drive test (long) if it has one:
