Just set your BIOS up as you like, boot the install media, delete the partitions at the "where to install the OS" screen, follow the on screen instructions and then install drivers as outlined in this guide.

I am having all sorts of issues. Let me start..

I just built a new rig and am trying to run windows. I want to install it to my SSD. I only have my ssd connected and its set to AHCI. WHen I run the windows CD and get to the installation i am getting this error after selecting th ssd drive and clicking next. '' windows could not format a partition on disk 0. the error occurred while preparing the partition selected for installation. error code 0x80070057''

i also follwed your guide about using the command prompts beforehand. I get this error after the ''clean' command. ''The request could not be performed because of an i/o device error.''

i am a total noob here as well but your insight would be appreciated

Try another SATA port, try another SATA cable.

 

Try to remake the Windows install CD, maybe try a USB.

I have a very old laptop but it is still working, old as in like 500Mhz and 512MB ram era.. Would windows7 be suitable for that one or stick to XP? Since it came with XP..

the bare minimum of ram win 7 supports is 1gb of ram. and believe you me you will definitely want more then that as just barely running the os will take almost 1gb of ram as is. youd be better off switching to Linux mint or dsl

Was not that easy. It loaded/installed the 32-bit files instead of the 64-bit. Can I re-install the 64-bit now or did I just through $100 for the SSD out the window??

You can install 64-bit and activate it on the same serial key.

Hi Sean, I'm having the same problem as Scott where Windows does not recognize any drivers on the USB. My SSD is plugged into a SATA 6GBS port and i'm using a back panel USB port. Any help?

Did you try another USB port?

 

And did is the drive plugged into the NATIVE SATA 6Gb/s port? What mobo do you have?

post #4970 of 5384
Apologies for not having my rig in my signature; it should be there now. I have a GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3P mobo. I've tried all the USB ports. My SSD is connected to a SATA port directly on the mobo, if thats what you mean by native.
