    windows 8 getting stuck at 56% installation failed


    computer specs, GeForce GTX 760 and i5-4670k CPU. MSI Z97-G45 Gaming Series motherboard. 2tb hdd. finally was able to get my new copy of windows 8 to boot from the cd drive. now when i try to install it, (no current operating system is on this hard drive) it keeps getting stuck before it finishes completion. says install failed. think it slugs out at 56%. tried running it 2x same thing. any idea what this could be or what i could do to make it finish the install?

    Where did you get you disk from and was it a full retail version? Did you remove all external devices except the keyboard and mouse?

    There is the possibility that it was a bad disk. Download an ISO disk and try to install from that.
