    Windows 8 DVD, Computer just reboots after the logo


    I am trying to boot from the windows installation disc but after the window logo, for a split-second it says your pc ran into a problem, I didn't even notice the first time because it was so fast, then it just restarts. I already have indows 7 installed and i want to install windows 8 on my other hard drive.

    When you boot the DVD, it asks you to hit a key? When you use the Boot Device Menu, what boot device do you show to boot to?

    Since you are running Windows 7, did you do the install as Legacy and booting the Windows 8 DVD that way also?
