    Hi,

    I just bought a new ssd (intel 520) and installed ML on it. I try to install Windows 8 RTM using DVD but when my macbook (2011 8.2) boot from the installation disc it hang on the new windows 8 logo (just see the new logo that's it...). I try to install it from a USB drive with rEFIT but that doesn't work (keep getting no bootable disk...). I have tried to reburn the DVD multiple times it's the same. The iso is straight from MSDN and I have checked the SHA1 hash it's the same on MSDN. Just to make sure my dvd drive is ok, it tried to boot using my windows 7 disc and it boot fine...so must be something wrong with DVD disc (might try to burn on another brand) or something else...

    Anyone else having this issue or know what's going on?

    Thanks,

    Stephen
