Windows 7 SSD installation issues

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I seem to be having issues installing windows 7 from a CD onto my SSD. I've tried a few things, I've tried flashing the mobo BIOS to the most recent version, AHCI, RAID, I've tried using the gigabyte AHCI/RAID pre-installation driver at the Windows setup, and I've tried installing in good old IDE mode. Nothing works, it tells me that the required files for installation could not be loaded.

Help?

SOLVED - Faulty disk

Bad copy of Windows 7 then? or can you install fine on a HDD?

Or your SSD is faulty?

I wouldn't know if my SSD was faulty, I've never used it, it's a new OCZ Vertex 2.

You should be able to simply set your storage controller to ahci and do the install.No need to load drivers.After you set to ahci and begin loading windows what exactly happens?

Be sure the ssd is in the very first sata port 1 or 0 and no other drives attached.
