The problem is that X220 hangs on splash screen during Windows 8 boot process.
Usually, the screen dims if the boot is successful.
I have installed an intel SSD 520 and had it updated to the latest driver/firmware. I have installed 16GB Memory.
I had both my SSD and memory tested and found NP.
BIOS is latest.
EVERYTHING is latest.
Windows 8 just hangs irregularly.
I also noticed the ratio of the splash screen isn't correct: the circling circle isn't round, it's ovan.
Installed Windows 8 with EFI/GPT.
Anyone got similar issue?
