    so, i built my computer yesterday. when i tried to install windows 8 this morning, i got stuck on a loop. it says that there was an unexpected error and it needs to restart, because when it boots up...after about 15 seconds, my computer restarts (in like 3 seconds) thus causing this? im not sure what is happening or why, but i have nowhere to turn.

    you may have format the drive so it's running GPT. Boot into UEFI mode and run the installation disk again removing any created partitions and then windows should automatically create the GPT partitions ect..
