    Hello,
    I can't install Windows 8 on my new Inspiron 15z 5523 laptop.

    I've got two problems.
    First, the drives don't show up when I boot Windows from the BIOS.
    See the images above.

    And when I click Load driver

    The second problem is that I can't even install the Windows while Windows is running.
    The installation runs fine and when the computer restarts and continue the installation a BSOD appears.

    And when I start Windows normally I get this message.

    I am trying to install Windows 8 64-bit.
    This is the Windows I am trying to install, It is a DVD disc my friend gave me.

    First and foremost, in order to install an operating system, one MUST have a valid product key corresponding to that operating system.
    To install a Win 8, one needs to have a valid Win 8 product key.
    Correct me if I am wrong.
    You do NOT have a valid Windows 8 product key, do you ?
    Your friend's Win 8 product key can only be used in his/her computer. No good for you.

    Also, make sure your computer is ready to be upgraded to Windows 8.
    Use the following link .......( Upgrade assistant )
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-ca/windows-8/upgrade-assistant-download-online-faq

    If you get the green light, then go to a computer retail store or go to Microsoft Online, and buy a Win 8 which will come with a dvd and a valid product key. Then you can install.
    There is no short cut.
    Microsoft is not that dumb.
