Sean's Windows 7 Install & Optimization Guide for SSDs & HDDs - Page 96

post #951 of 5385
I did these steps. But mine says "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style.

Whats happening?

i am using my CD drive with a Windows 7 disk inside.

My bios lists this:


BIOS boot function [Enabled]

>Select UEFI file to boot from.

When I click on that and choose my CD drive, it says "There isnt any bios file in this usb key(root folder). Please copy BIOS file to this USB key(root folder).

Connect SSD and ODD only. You need to boot into something like [UEFI]:"Your DVD drive".

Can you post a screen shot of AS SSD with your drive?

not sure what this means O.O , arnt the proper drivers already installed???

Use the AMD SATA drivers in the download section of the guide, you are using the MS ones atm.

amd drivers didnt help the benchmark speeds any( actually worse ) but i think it smoothed out the spikes i was getting havent tried the sata 3 port yet

Ignore the message that you encountered in the partition screen of windows 7 installation. It's a common error message which doesn't practically mean anything. I bet you can click "Next", am I correct?

Sean, i dunno if you have something like this already, but i changed my win 7 default prog install folder. some progs don't give you the option. so this is easier, don't need to monitor ssd storage so much now smile.gifcheck it out. if you have 64-bit use the last set of instructions.

Thanks, I think there was a reason I didn't put it in before, I forgot it though lol. I will have to check it out again.

Let me know if you run into any issues. thumb.gif
