Make sure when your Windows 8 CD Finish installation you remove the CD from the drive.

If it stays the same try replacing the CD of Windows 8 and install it from a different CD because it seems like your current Windows 8 CD is not writing boot sectors for load.

Try pressing F8 after restart and see if your laptop find Windows 8 instance for safe mode.
