Windows 8 installation hangs @ "Getting Devices Ready 25%" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am trying to upgrade from Windows 7 Pro 64bit to Windows 8.

    When the computer reboots for the first time after Windows 8 completes installing, it gets to a splash screen with the Windows 8 logo and text "Getting Devices Ready 25" before the screen goes blank.

    I'm not sure what to do.  I've waited almost 2 hours and nothing has come up.  The screen is blank.

    My PC specs are:

    i7 3770k 4.5ghz

    16gb ram


    nVidia GTX 670

    I have only a keyboard connected.
