I am trying to install a dual boot Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows 8 Pro on an XPS 8500 special edition. I created a new primary partition from my C drive, inserted the Windows 8 install disk, and rebooted my computer from the DVD.
I select custom install and the dialog box saying "Where do you want to install windows at?" pops up but none of my drives are listed. I don't understand why none of my drives are showing up on this menu. Not even the original drive. When I select to load a driver and click on the partition I created it tells me "No signed device drivers were found. Make sure the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK."
Running the setup program from within the installed Windows instead of booting from DVD was able to locate my new partition and start install. It completes the first step of "Copying windows files" just fine but then on the next step "Getting files ready for installation" my computer restarts and attempts to load Windows 8 but keeps telling me my PC needs to restart. This keeps going on in an infinite boot loop. Please help, this has been a nightmare!
