Black screen during installation

    Question

  • So I booted my PC with the Windows 8 Dev Preview x64 DVD and setup seemed to go fine, I saw it it doing the extracting and all, but then after restart it says "Windows Developer Preview" and loads, then my screen turns black and nothing happens, except after a while I can see my cursor. 

    AMD 965, 4gb ram, ATi HD5870

  • Does it start up at all?

  • Nope, that's pretty much how far I get. I get a black screen and a cursor to see. It works great though (cursor is responsive and all)!

  • this happened to me multiple times on my laptop

    for some reason after installing the ATI drivers, my screen always turns black. I am able to see my mouse cursor moving. I have to push the CHANGE MONITOR SCREEN button on my laptop several times to get out of it.

     

    I think ATI hates W8....
