Unfortunately I got the same results . The operating system is not being completely installed. The screen goes black and when I try to restart the computer in safe mode I get the error message "Windows cannot complete installation in safe mode. To continue installing windows restart the computer." I believe there is a BIOS, MBR or a hardware problem. I have attempted to install the operating system using a genuine OEM disk that I used successfully in 2010. I have also tried using another genuine OEM disk getting the same results. So if it is not a software problem could it be that the computer is not making the final restart which allows the installation to be completed? What part of the computer shut downs the operating system and turns the power off so that the computer reboots? This is not happening. In this final restart the screen goes black, hard drive activity stops but the power remains on.
