    Eddy, you have not provided enough info for anyone to help you. Are there any error codes on the blue screen? What drive are you installing Win 8 on? What install method are you trying? Is it a clean install or ...?

    One possibility is if you are installing to the SSD and you are upgrading or saving old files there may not be enough disk space. I would hope that the win 8 installer would tell you that.

    Hi Eddy024,
    Even I have the same system and got the Win8Pro upgrade offer. Got Product key and after installation it went to the same blue screen as you mentioned. Had tough time to get it back to life and now on Win 7 HB. Now that I have downloaded the ISO and made a DVD, planning to try it again. Is Win8Pro working fine for you? Did you update any HP drivers separately after installation? Please comment
