I'm reinstalling Windows 8 as I do every year but this time however I'm getting extremely frustrated to the point I want to just throw every damn piece of technology out the window. I've never had this much hassle installing any OS.
Last install of Win8 I had my Razer BlackWidow keyboard plugged in (both usb inputs in usb3 ports), my Logitech G600 mouse in a usb2 port, the printer cable in another usb2 port and the sound inputs from the blackwidow plugged in. I had my SSDs in RAID0, with 3 other SATA hard drives plugged in. Install went perfectly fine except that I would have to unplug all my usb devices to get it to boot then plug them back in when it did boot. Never found a fix for it so I just kept doing that all the time.
Now however same exact thing to install, I get stuck at "Getting Devices Ready". No percent sign for progress or nothing. I've been Googling the past couple days to see what the hell is going on but all I find are posts about it from back in CP/RP release days and none of them have had problems I'm having. It's either stuck before devices ready or at 20%, etc.
What the heck is going on I'm about ready to murder my rig I spent all this money and time on building.
