    P Pavilion dv6-3049tx Entertainment Notebook PC - Windows


    Hello I have a
    HP Pavilion dv6-3049tx Entertainment Notebook PC
    with windows 7 which I am using from quite sometime, recently I decided to dual boot my system with windows 8.

    But after taking an origional windows 8.1 from msdn official site when i tried to dual boot I had some issue of "dynamic disk" which I came to know that I cant install a new OS if my hard disk is of "dynamic type". Now after reading from many blogs I downloaded one utility and converted my hard disk from "dynamic type" to "basic type" with that utility without formatting the hard disk, but just by using that utility which went fine.

    Now after installing the origional windows 8.1 from the bootable pen drive yesterday I was using fine until now.
    Suddenly when i started doing some actual work I got some graphics issue( I guss but not sure) and my screen started going to black couple of times like it used to happen in windows 7 when it used to do " switchable Graphics" thing.I thought that it will go off but it happened quite some time and windows 8 just restarted .Again i tried samething happened and my windows 8 is just restarting again and again after couple of black screen effects.Please help me now I am not able to log in to my windows 8 also its just hanging in between but I am able to use my windows 7 smoothly.

    The reasons can be many

    1) As I have changed the disk type from "dynamic to basic" without formatting my harddisk that can be a problem, but i over rule coz the procedure of installing windows was smooth.

    2) As i am not good that technically so I am not sure if I have to update my BIOS or any graphics drivers or anything.

    3) Mainly I think there is some issues with windows 8 trying to access C drive and its not happening coz i checked some event logs.

    4) Also now my Windows 8 disk partition is showing as the primary partition in disk management, I am not sure if it should be that way.

    Please help me in this coz i need to install windows 8 and start making apps for windows phone and I cant afford a new laptop.

    I can share snapshots. Just ask what you guys needs.

    Thank you,
    Please help.

    This is a problem that HP made when setting the HD.
