I've installed windows 8 just now and after I install drivers it gets stuck in an infinite reboot loop.

I'm thinking it has something to do with the chipset. The motherboard is an ASUS P8Z68-V.

I downloaded the correct drivers from the Asus website and I've also updated my BIOS to the latest version.

I had the problem when installing the chipset driver from the asus website. I skipped this one after a reinstall and then installed the rest. Seems like that wasn't the problem.

I read around but couldn't get any decent answers. I tried a memtest86+ and that came back negative. Next i tried to set the SATA settings in BIOS to AHCI/RAID/IDE, that didn't help either.

I'm kinda stuck here on what to do.

Specs:

Intel Core I5 2500K OCZ Vertex 3 60GB 6 GB Kingston DDR3 PC10600 ASus P8Z68-V 2 other regular SATA hdd's

If possible place your minidump to free file hosting. Then we can figure out something specific.forums.techguy.org/attachments/216265d1351440948t/untitled2.png – STTR Feb 11 '13 at 19:07
    
I tried doing as you told me but I didn't manage to get windows to create a minidump. He only does that with a BSOD? – Christophe De Troyer Feb 14 '13 at 13:59

I just did a refresh, since I've tried an older version of the bios and this is what the list of removed apps is: begijnhof.no-ip.org:8080/Shared/Overige/Removed%20Apps.html – Christophe De Troyer Feb 16 '13 at 15:14

Need APCI hal reinstall.

Advanced Configuration and Power Interface - a term not accurately reflect its member technology and introduces a direct error.

ACPI is not only the manager of supply. ACPI - allocator and root device enumerator. ACPI - the root of the device tree.

Incorrectly ACPI - incorrectly can work all device.

Need Z68 chipset driver but ia not all set.

Okay, so it worked, but now it's back. Frustrating as hell :( I installed that chipset driver but that didn't work. So i hard copied the driver over the current one, but that didn't work either. I'm kinda stuck here now on what to do. It has worked fine for a couple of weeks, but now, suddenly.. – Christophe De Troyer Mar 23 '13 at 8:03
    
@ChristopheDeTroyer Your BIOS version 3603(Only for Win7 & Win8) ? – STTR Mar 23 '13 at 10:57

I ran into a similar issue that indicated similar to your issue that it might be chipset drivers.

The solution for me was to get a beta version of NVidia's drivers for Windows 8.1 and that solved the issue.

The bits are a little tricky to find for my specific machine setup (Lenovo W530, NVidia Quadro 1000M, running Windows 8.1 preview) but the version that solved my problem was 326.19.

Hope that helps.
