    boot problem while installing windows _


    Hi, I tried to install windows 8 with key on a new HP 280 G1. Despite all attempts to boot with DVD or even a bootable USB I just receive this message: "Load Freedos including Himem xms - memory driver" then an entry to BIOS with C:/
    How can I fix this and bootwith DVD or USB?
