It is a problem with the BIOS, wait for Intel to solve the issues. It only happens in UEFI mode, if you turn off UEFI and install in Legacy mode then it will not freeze.
Okay, thanks for the information.
I will keep on working this way and I hope that intel will fix this problem soon.
I purchased a new video card, EVGA GTX 660ti and updated it with UEFI firmware. I installed Windows 8 using Secure Boot (Legacy Boot off), at the end of installer it rebooted fine. I restarted 5-6 times in Windows and it did not hang, 2 times it did reboot slowly, took about 5 seconds.
Will do some more testing to verify that it does not hang.
I have tried the fix in windows 8 and now it works perfectly !!!!
The computer shuts down perfectly and it reboots perfectly ! I have tried like 10 times and no problems occured.
Thank u very much for this great fix
But intel still needs to fix the bios because when we install windows 8 in uefi we can have the 'hang problem' when the installer says to reboot the computer...
When i have tried to shutdown the computer for the 11th time it hanged
But it occurs not that often anymore ...
Hmmm but with the second fix ( the one with disabledynamictick ) is everything ok for the moment...
There is a serious problem with windows 8...
I let u know if its fixen now...
Good if it works. I have not used the disabledynamictick fix yet but for me it did not hang so far, sometimes it takes 1-3 seconds to restart/shut down, but some other times it takes 30 seconds or more, i did not have to use the Power button shut down, which is good.
The second fix still works for me man
The computer shuts down correctly.
I hope in the next bios update we see in the release notes : full win8 support
I still have the problem
Any sugestions, please?
When i restart or shut down i get this error DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION.
For me it works except that it sometime takes 20-30 seconds to restart/shutdown.
I have not disabled fast startup and i have not used the dynamictic trick.
Why it still hangs for you, i don't know. Are you booting in UEFI mode?
No, I don't boot in UEFI mode.
I've searched for this error, and I found, on Microsoft website, that is caused by a driver. I have updated all drivers from Intel website, but the error persists.
I've used Windows 8 32bit for one week and i had no problems. After I've installed Windows 8 64bit I've started to encounter this error, even when I installed the OS, at the fierst restart my computer freezed.
So my windows 8 worked for me perfectly after i dit the 2nd fix (disable dynamictick).
Yesterday there were 2 updates of windows 8 after i activated the windows...
I installed the updates and after those 2 updates i'm having the same problems as before ...
I re-entered the dynamictick thing but the problems weren't away
I re-installed windows 8 in legacy boot (disabled uefi) and the problems weren't gone, it hangs when i choose to
restart or to shut down the computer.
So i installed Windows 7 and this works perfectly !!!!
I don't understand it anymore, i think we all have to wait for a bios update that works perfectly with win8.
I will use win7 now and when all the problems are gone i will re-install win8
