I need help to install windows 8 on a bare drive on a new build.
My system is as follows;
Fx-8350 Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z 16gb DDR3-1600 Ram 2gb xfx core Radeon Hd 7870 Samsung 840 Pro Series 128gb (trying to make this the boot) WD Red 2Tb (data drive-unconnected during windows install) Samsung SH-224DB 24X SATA DVD Writer 750W PSU Windows 8 64bit
I've tried installing windows 8 by booting from the installation media, setup runs fine, copies the files to the partition i've created. But then after restarting immediately after installing it just sits there with a blank screen. i've left the computer try to sort itself out, but it eventually turns off and doesn't boot to windows afterwards.
Any help would greatly be appreciated.

I fixed it. Turns out secure boot was enabled and my dvd drive was not uefi, so i ripped the dvd iso and made a bootable flash drive, and then was able to load everything from there with no more problems. Thanks for giving it a look.
