I have a custom built computer everything brand new, but when I try to install Windows 8.1 x64 onto my computer I boot from my disc drive and it goes past the press any key to continue screen, so I press any key and it brings up the blue windows 8 logo and then just freezes.

 

My PC components:

 

Motherboard - Biostar Hi-Fi A85W
Processor - AMD A8 5600k Blk Edt. 3600Mhz 4m 100w socket FM2
DVD Drive - LG 24X Sata DVDRW OEM
Hard Drive - Western Digital Caviar Black 1.0TB Sata/32Mb Cache
Toshiba 1TB 7200rpm 3.5" Sata (Brand New)
Memory - Patriot Intel Extreme Master Viper 3 DDR3 4Gb 1600
Kingston 4Gb 1600Mhz 9-9-9 DDR3 Hyperx Red 
- The first two I've had for awhile. 
Kingston Hyperx Blu 8gb DDR3 - 1600 CL10 240-Pin (Brand new first time use)
Video Card - Galaxy GeForce GTX550Ti 1024Mb/MO GDDR5
Power Supply - Antec25 Earthwatts 650W

 

I've tried a lot of things like changing my sata type from native ide to legacy ide to ahci. Turning off legacy usb 3.0 and just legacy usb. I've tried booting with uefi and legacy nothing works. Someone if you have any advice from previous experiences please help! I've been trying to fix it for weeks now. 

 

-Thanks in advance.

Try removing all but one of your DIMM's.

OK.  Mixing different RAM speeds and brands can cause problems.  Just use one of them while fault finding.

 

I would suggest running a few passes of memtest86 which you can get here.

 

Is it stable with anything else?  For example will it run a Linux live CD?

 

Something that might be worth trying is creating a Windows 8.1 USB installer (so you install from a USB stick rather than the DVD).  Some guidance on how to do this is here - http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows-8/a/install-windows-8-usb.htm

Try installing windows 8 instead of Windows 8.1 .. Might be certain updates on Windows 8.1 is crashing with your drivers.

Ok I've tried only using one stick. Doesn't work. I've tried Linux that doesn't work, that freezes as well. Ive tried memtest everything passed. I'll definatly try USB booting! My friend said that windows 8 sometimes has problem booting from sata connection(DVD drive is sata) so I'm getting a DVD drive that's USB.

 

Edit:

 

Booting from USB did not work.
