Hey gang, Im new here. I'm at my whits end trying to figure this out. Never happened before. Im trying to install windows 8.1 64bit on a formatted hard drive that previously had windows 7. I put the windows 8 image on a usb stick to facilate things, but it's a no go. The set up just loops over and over. So I take out the pen drive and that's when the error comes up. I've been trying to get this going for hours now. arghhh..

Im back on windows 7 for now. Should I try just putting the image on a regular disk?

thanks for any feeback. ^-^
