I have bought Win 8 online, download was succesful, saved it in .iso, then made bootable Flashdrive using Microsoft DVD/USB TOOL.
Did a clean install, everything went fine until the GETTING DEVICES READY screen, where the screen went blank and then didnt proceed ahead even after several restarts.
HP Pavilion DV-43006TX (2011 model)
Win 7 Home Premium x64 pre-installed
Core i5 2410
Dual Switchable graphics (AMD 6750 + Intel HD graphics)
I have also checked elswhere on forums and this is a recurring error on devices with dual graphics (nVidia OPTIMUS and AMD switchable graphics (including enduro). There has been success for people who have the option of turning the dual graphics option off in the BIOS, but such an option is not available on my laptop.
If anyone could please have a workaround to this issue it would be just great! Even a complicated workaround would do, I really do want to use Win 8, but I cant due to this issue!
NOTE: I've already tried going into the safe mode, but the error i recieved was the INSTALLATION CANNOT CONTINUE IN THE SAFE MODE
