I recently bought an SSD and followed your guide for installation. Well because of mistakes I made with installing programs I am going to reinstall windows on it. So my question is, should I still follow the directions from start to finish? Specifically, should I format the drive and make the partition again like with the original instructions or just reinstall windows and have it clear the drive. Thanks.

Yeah, if you are re-installing do the partitioning section over again.

Did you boot from the USB or the DVD with the UEFI: option?

Did you make sure on the USB to do the second video with the BOOTX64.EFI file? \

Maybe you need a new Windows 7 ISO?

I've also tried an mbr install with no luck. What the heck am I doing wrong? Thanks!
Ok, you are not doing something right...I think your ISO is bad? What issue are you running into with the MBR partitioning guide?

Same error, or blue screen which I have a picture of but can't post bc all I have now is my iPad. I previously had a raid 0 setup, but i have switched my Sata to ahci. My ISo is the one linked in the sticky, windows ultimate x64. Both USB and DVD were set to uefi in bios when attempting gpt installs.

And yes, when doing the uefi install (gpt) I included the extra .efi file.

You may have bad RAM or a corrupt ISO, try re-downloading the ISO and starting again.

Run this to test the RAM: http://www.memtest.org/

Doesn't memtest only test up to 4GB of Ram? If you download a new ISO and problem still occurs, remove all but one stick of RAM, if it still occurs after that, switch that one stick with another. If it does it after THAT...try running the RAM stick in another slot (but refer to your mobo manual for which one, I think most will only allow you to run a single stick in either slot number 1 and slot number 3) if none of these tricks work, it's beyond me...

Hmm I did have issues getting all 16 fb of ram running when I first installed it. They have all passed memtest though. I'll try with one stick. Here's my problem though: I damaged my processor last time I installed my hsf, so I'm nervous to remove it again. But I'll have to to get to my ram frown.gif may be time to get a new processor if I damage it, and if it's time to get a new processor it's time to make the switch to intel.

Although why is it always crashing about 30% of the way through the install? That doesn't sound like ram to me, it just shouldn't boot or would immediately bs if there was a problem with the ram wouldn't it?

Solved. My overtired self overlooked a very simple mistake. When I took my overclock off for the install, I forgot to downclock my memory again, it's never been stable at the rated 1600 MHz. So when I reverted to stock settings, the frequency increased from 1333 to 1600 which is why it was unstable. Thankseveryonefor the help, + rep!

I was going to ask if you had your timings stock or not, but I went and played tennis and forgot lol. Glad you found the issue.

Hey, Sean, how about the download links without SP1 integrated? I don't see it in the first page.

Sean,

I want to quick format and reinstall windows 7 on my SSD. Where on this guide Configure drive using an UEFI motherboard and GPT format: should I put the formatting part? Can I quick format it in the command prompt before typing "diskpart" etc.?
