    Windows 8 not installed


    I have installed win7 on C: \ partition and created another for Win8, partition G: \ I can not complete installation of Win8. Sometimes the screen to choose the boot appears, sometimes do'nt. When it appears, if I choose win7 it goes well, but if I choose Win8 comes only a black screen with the Mouse cursor.


    My system is: ASUS M5A7BL LE, Phenom II CPU with 4 cores, 4G RAM
    I Have checked the Hash, recorded two DVDs (just in case) and nothing works. But installed inside VMWare Win8 works fine

    Suggestions, please?

    Post a screen shot of a full screen Disk Management window please.

    To open Disk Management, press Windows key+r, type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter or click GO. Make it full screen.

    See here: How to Use the Snipping Tool in Vista - Vista Forums (says it's for Vista but also works with Win 7/8).

    Once you have the image saved, start a new reply, click on Go Advanced.

    Check on services.msc
    Make Sure Virtual Disk Service is not disable (must be on Manual or Automatic)

    Ok, jaca. You're making headway. Unfornately I don't speak your language (Portuguese?), so I don't feel I can help. Good luck.

    I have Win8 installed from within win7, but the results are the same. At a time when the Win8 boot screen appeared, I chose win7 as default OS. I chose win8 from there, and sent into Win8 Update . It also did not help, but win8 is there, in the partition G, I just have no way to use it. I noticed that my name does not appear as User, only Public User.

    Well...it's the end for now
