@owcraftsman

Exactly. I just want to install windows 7 to the sd. I bought a brand new Blue Ray player and burnt a new iso image directly from Microsofts website.

I would like to add though that The DVD that I originally setup this installation of windows with " This is a Raid 0 Setup on the same motherboard " was fine and should still be fine to use but I played it safe and did that yes. I also bought 3 different SSDs and all three fail with the same error message.

I let Windows setup the hard drive the way it wants toi, I just said it wrong earlier I apologize for that t was late tongue.gif.

I have been disconnecting all drives except for the SSD and Burner..

I tried having the burner on a few different ports and have been leaving the ssd where it is plugged in to a grey port.

Thank you for your help. I will report back as well about the memory swap..

Anyone else noticing slower upload speeds with this intel chipset? My downloads are nicer and less stuttering but the uploads are half as fast and I rarely hit my cap now when I used to sustain it with my gigabyte board.

I've switched SSDs twice or rather I've tried three different SSDs and one of them is a Crucial M4. I kept it so now I have a Chronos Deluxe 240GB and the M4 240GB. The other one was a Kingston HyperX 240GB, same 2281 chipset as the Mushkin one I have still and it did the same thing.
They fail while expanding the windows 7 installation files stating that the file doesn't exist and it halts the installation. I swapped out the motherboard per asus's suggestion today as well and swapped out the cpu while I was at it " Figured I might get a better chip from it lol " and still, the same issue occurred. Neither one will let windows install to them lol.
I will push the CPU later to see if I got a winner this time tongue.gif.
I can go in to great detail about what all I have tried at this point if you like but basically I've tried every single possible combination of changing configs and resetting the bios and taking everything out except for the cd rom and the ssd and just everything possible really. I've been just using the SSD and Burner when attempting the installs since the first time I tried that by the way just so you know that's not the issue.
I bought a new Blue Ray burner to make sure that it wasn't the issue. I burnt a new image from Microsoft's website that I paid them for of Windows Ultimate 64bit.
I've tried loading the driver for ahci even though I shouldn't need to and it still fails. I've done that before partitioning the drive and after and both have the same out come. I've tried IDE AHCI and Raid to no avail.
I bought Paragon and tried it and it stops communicating to the SSDs at about 87% of the way done roughly so I can't use OS to SSD or any other type of imaging program for that matter......
I'm swapping my memory out tomorrow it's the only thing left at his point. I haven't swapped the Sata6GB cable yet but it's the brand new one from ASUS so... Chances their are very very slim.. I hope that would be funny if it's been a defective brand new cable from asus, the whole time huh. tongue.gif I highly doubt it but I will try it later as well at this point.
Tell me if I've missed anything lol. It's driving me insane not being able to just install windows to a damn ssd on this motherboard at this point.
I'm going to switch my cables out for new ones from the new motherboard box and switch my memory lanes as well to see if that helps or not right now.
Update:
Switching out the cables for new ones and switching the memory to different lanes didn't help either. I will swap the memory out tomorrow and at that point, I believe I've done every single thing I can possibly do on my side to remedy this issue. I'm thinking it will end up being my memory.
If it's not, then the ball will land in Asus's lap I would think unless some one here can think of something I've left out, something I'm missing.
Thanks for the help by the way. I need it this is driving me batty.

Wow, this is strange. You seem to have done everything possible. I was going to suggest a firmware update to the Blu-Ray , but you said you put a new one in. Reason I said that was I recently burned a couple of movies on a RW disc and half way through both movies the disc decided not to play back anymore. I was playing the disc back on my home theater DvD which I've never had a problem playing back RW disc's from my computer. Did a firmware update and problem solved. Go figure.... Sometimes it's the smallest or easiest thing that makes everything else go south. But in your case I don't get it. I'm going to buy a SSD drive either before or after Xmas (probably after as prices really drop then) and will be doing the same with my setup, but using the "Intel Smart Response Technology" so I can speed up all of my hard drives. I hope I don't run into what it is that's happening to you. biggrin.gif

If I have any thoughts on this I'll get back to you, but right now I don't see that you're doing anything others wouldn't do. And I doubt it's the SATA cable either. I used the ASUS cables also and they worked fine, but you never know, stranger things have happened....

Just wanted to say that my up (and down) load speeds have remained the same from a very old setup to a new ASUS Z68 board. I assume your drop in speed is significant enough to wonder if it's the board, or chip set. Anyway, mines doing okay and for your reference I'm using cable Internet from Time Warner (Roadrunner). Same speeds now as before.

I just setup a system similar to this on a P8Z68V/Core i5-2400 system. I used a 64GB Corsair M4 paired with a 1TB Hitachi drive and it is really fast... gives my 80Gb SSD/Win7/64 setup a run for the money.

I setup the BIOS as RAID... THEN installed Win7/64HP. Later in IRST I setup the cache drive.... which becomes invisible. The cache is tied to one drive, not all of them.

Edit: corrected Hitachi drive from GB to TB. Oops.

Im hoping someone can help me. I had to RMA my Asus P8Z68 V Pro now Asus wont cover it under warranty due to trace damage unless I give them a $150 to replace it and it will take them another 5-10 business days before they finish. Im currently using a P8P67 now, should I even bother with the Asus P8Z68 V Pro and pay another $150?

Tough call redalert. Did you cause the trace damage? All the same if you own the P8P67 you are now using I think I would just hold up for now and see what comes out in 2012. You would be buying "old" tech even tho it is a fine board. I have one myself but would be hard pressed to spend another 150 on it after already buying it once. Yeah, I would wait to get a newer model board next year.

I got a boot device LED error a couple weeks ago, I start disconnecting/connecting different hardware then I get a CPU LED error and a puff smoke comes from the back of the motherboard. The thing that really sucks is I gotta re install windows on my M4, Im currently using a different SSD atm. I know what I will be doing on Saturday reformatting again thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif
