Not sure this even works, but I think that there may be a hardware conflict with your laptop. So I'd say take your hard drive out, plug it into a computer and install Windows 8 on it then put the hard drive back in the laptop.
I've never done that so I have no idea if an OS installation is specific to a certain computers hardware/processor ID or something.
Just an idea. Maybe someone else could say if that would actually work or not.
Just in case someone comes along with a similar issue, sees this and attempt it....
OS installations don't work this way. At least not as simple as that. When you install Windows, the installation process loads drivers and files for your specific hardware. It was a good suggestion, just not one that actually works.
