10 posts in this topic

Hello everyone, I have the installation DVD of Windows 8, but when I try to boot from DVD, nothing happens, or rather it seems to boot but they are still labeled as init boot if I put the cd in windows 7 it works .. Now I have heard of EFI is not something that has to do?

You can see if UEFI boot is enabled in the BIOS. I notice on some hardware, when using UEFI boot, the video disappears after the "Loading Files" progressbar. I have yet to find a solution for that problem.

It might be helpful if you could post what hardware you are using.

You can try disable UEFI boot option, or use the boot menu to choose your ODD without the UEFI prefix. With UEFI boot enabled, with the Windows 8 DVD in the drive, you should have 2 ODD options in the boot menu.

I understand the problem, the disc is in udf format is not read in the dvd player. If I try to create a disc that I said that the file install.win amount exceeds the 2GB and so you have to create a disc udf .. But how is this possible?

Apparently WIn8 can't be installed on a GPT formatted drive if the computer uses BIOS. It must use UEFI.

Also Win8 won't install on a computer using UEFI if the hard drive is formatted MBR. It must be GPT

In other words:

GPT UEFI - yes.

MBR BIOS - yes

Otherwise - no.

Out of the box, if using GPT format (even on a BIOS level), Windows 8 is going to automatically create the MSR and boot partitions. In this case, if you are using GPT on BIOS, you'd get a 2TB max GPT volume (even if the disk is larger) but the OS won't be able to boot because Windows 8 cannot write the boot files for a GPT disk on BIOS. But it is possible to manually install Windows 8 (not using Setup, but using DISM) to a GPT disk on BIOS, as long as the two other partitions aren't created. That, however, isn't a supported method of installing an OS on GPT.
