I want to install widows 8 on my pc. I have done this many times before, as I have this pc for a few years and never had any problems. This time however the installation hangs on the boot splash screen of asus logo. After the initial windows installation (product keys, formatting, partitioning etc) the pc restarts as required and then hangs, no response whatsoever. I disconnected the hard drive and then the pc booted ahead. I connected the drive to another pc thinking it might have malfunctioned but it works fine. After removing all the partitions I connected it again to my own pc and installation worked but again after initial setup of windows, after it restarts, it hung on the asus splash screen again. Please help
 
It would appear that something other than the drive might be failing the POST cycle.
Try testing with different RAM if you can and unplugging all non-essential devices and cards (GPU included - use onboard if available) to see if it POSTS.
