'Ello! i'm having problems with (re) installing windows 8 from a flash drive.
the issue is that whenever I try to boot from the USB stick the bios stops after displaying the dashboard of hardware plugged into the computer ( dimm slots, Hard drives, processor IDs and so fourth), DMI data i believe.
it displays the forementioned dashboard but it does not boot. it just freezes at that point, regardless of how many hard drives i have plugged in.
the motherboard is a Gigabyte AM2+ board and the USB drive is a noname hama drive that's extremely small, formatted with ntfs and has had windows 8 installfiles put on it.
