What's the issue? It's more than likely some sort of user error than an issue with Windows 8. I'd be glad to help you out with it. :-)

Well, it seems to freeze when completing installation. It was almost done. Then I realize that the Mouse won't move at all. When I restart the computer it reverses the installation process. While it was frozen before I kept it on for approx. 10 hours and it never changed. It had a Mobile Pentium 4 2.0 GHz but my dads computer was an old Pentium 4 and his worked. I don't understand...(Dell Dimension 4300 worked, not my Dell Inspiron 8200)

1: What jumpers? How are you even going to get into the thing without use of Super Tools?
2: Maybe it's possible to disable the drivers kexts to disable sound. I don't know, I've not messed much with OS X.
