First I tried to install Win8 with a DVD, but aprox. half way thru the installation something went wrong...(1). So I thought there was something wrong with the DVD. After that I installed Win7 again. Then I tried to install Win8 with VirtualCloneDrive (I installed Win7 the same way)... Installed VCD, mounted the Win8 ISO file on it and started the installation. It all gone well. All the steps were completed, only remained the "Getting finished" part. The laptop restarted for its second time, Win8 logo appeared with the "progress circle" (those dots in circle)... and then... black screen. Nothing moves, just like (1).
I entered a xxxxx CD and I can see that all the files are in the hard drive.
I don't know what else should I do. Any suggestions guys?
Thanks.

Edit by mod. That is illegal software.

@scorpion99 Yes. I like to install a new Windows 8 on the existing Windows 7. But with these problems I don't know what to do.

mkdniki,

Do you know how to use Diskpart on the Windows 7 Installation DVD to make a Clean Install ??
