A question about Win 8

By HAL 9000 Moderator ·
OK this is an Odd one. Anyone run across the ISO's available from Microsoft not installing?

I can upgrade from 7 on a rig here used for testing but if I try to use the ISO it falls over at 45% of Extracting Files. Not always the same file but always around the 45% mark.

Seems to run OK otherwise and I've just installed Vista, then 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 without problems but it doesn't want to work with the ISO which I've downloaded twice now but if I use the 5.1 MEG file it passes and then downloads and installs.

Pity I'm too lazy to look any further with this unit but the RAM passes all tests as well as the rest of the Hardware so I'm assuming that it's something to do with 8.

Neither the 32 or 64 Bit Versions will install.
