I have installed Windows 8 Professional 64-bit in a VHD that dual boots with Windows 7. The VHD is dynamically expanding with a 128 GB capacity.
When windows 8 reboots, it seems to get stuck in an infinite loop and will say "Restarting" while the five dots circle around for hours and hours. When I use the power button to force it to turn off, it sometimes says, "Your PC ran into a problem". This error message tells me absolutely nothing that I don't already know. What happened to useful error messages?
If I use the command line
shutdown /r /f /t 0 it actually reboots. Is there a way to set the default arguments?
