Yes, that's exactly what I did.

Also, I followed your instructions to format the HD. Got all the way up to format fs=ntfs quick and it came up as error, the parameter is incorrect. I restarted the computer and tried again a few times. The 1st time I got to list disk and it came up as: There are no fixed disks to show The next time I got to clean and it came up as I/O device error. I am now doing it again.

It is showing the disk. It says Disk 0 Status: Online Size: 111gb Free: 111 gb

Check for SSD firmware update.

Contact the drive maker's tech support to help you test the drive for possible RMA. We see this sometimes with new SSD's.

Do you perchance have UEFI mobo? Any UEFI settings in BIOS or Boot menu key?

Did you try everything in Overcoming Windows 7 Installation Failures - Windows 7 Help Forums?

I replaced the battery on the motherboard and things started working again!! I followed instructions to format the disk and am now in the process of installing windows. After it installs, would it be ok to try to load the system image I have saved on my external drive, or will I mess up the new installation?

Thanks again everyone for all of your help!!!

You can do the System image now. No need to reinstall if you are happy with that image's performance as it was.

It looks like the issue I was having all along was the battery. Who would of thought that
a little battery could screw up a computer so bad, although you guys have probably seen it all (-:

I was able to load the system image on the SSD, but it wouldn't load all the files for some reason
so all of the settings were not the same. I couldn't get it back as it was, so I put my original HD
back and it is working great.

I'm trying to decide whether to keep the new SSD or send it back to Amazon.

Is there is a way to get all of the files to load just like it is on the old drive, and would
I see a real difference with the SSD as opposed the original drive? I mostly use the computer
for Internet and E-mail.

Thanks again for everyone's help!!! I'm glad to have this working again!!!

I'm glad you have everything working. Good job. You are better off doing a clean install, always. In fact I'm in the process of doing one as we speak/ But, you can transfer the OS. The only issue with an SSD is it has to be properly aligned. Notice in the diskpart I showed you align=1024. That would be the problem with restoring an image, sometimes it is not aligned properly. Here is a tutorial of how to transfer the OS to an SSD. SSD - Install and Transfer the Operating System The easy way is what I use, but it costs $19.95, but it's well worth it and mentioned in the above tutorial. I use it all the time. Paragon migrate OS to SSD (Paragon Migrate OS to SSD - System migration to Solid State Drives (SSD) - Overview). You have to do nothing except click about 3 buttons. It will format, align and transfer the os and I have never had it fail. In about 20 minutes you will be on the SSD.

You will notice a big difference in the responsiveness of the computer. The biggest comment we hear here is 'Why did I wait so long' and 'I'll never have a computer without one again'. It is mostly the read speed and response time. A typical mechanical hard drive has a response time of 15-16ms. A good SSD has a response time of 0.1ms. You will notice a difference. Try it and see how you like it. You have 30 days to return it. Give it a try.

Had to step away from it this weekend. I will load the operating system onto the SSD this week and let you know how it goes. Thanks again!!
