I've always recommended to check the appropriate distro forums first before installing anything and Antergos has several posts about hung installations either during or at first boot. Others such as Manjaro can also cause complications depending on your partition scheme, although they've recently updated their installer so maybe this is no longer the case.

It would have been a safer bet to dual boot with something well proven to be happy with Windows such as Mint. You could always overwrite this later with another distro or use Rescatux to restore your Windows boot in the event of a mishap.
Buy a Hoover and prove technology sucks.
