    Set Optimized Defaults in the bios then install again while formatting the partition you are installing to.

    Remove everything first from the machine that is not necessary. For example, external storage, any kind of peripherals like a gamepad etc...

    Install 32 bit Windows 8.

    Cool, good deal. Glad to hear it.

    You had me slightly confused above there - I thought you tried to already install again and ran into trouble again - so that's why I said to format again while installing....again...lol

    Don't forget now to visit your motherboard manufacturer's website to install the chipset, storage, USB 3.0 (if exists) and any other latest drivers they have for it.

    Also visit NVIDIA.com or AMD's site to get the latest video card driver to install if you have a card from one of them.

    Enjoy.
