New PC win 8 installation error restart loop

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.

asus sabertooth mark 1 z97
EVGA nvida 780 acx
cooler master 750w psu
intel i7 4770k
samsung 840 250 Gb SSD
seagate 3TB HDD
corsair vengence 2x 8Gb sticks
regular asus dvd drive

I am at my wits end, i have nobody to ask

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..
