Windows 7: Windows 7 x64 crash after install

25 Nov 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Windows 7 x64 crash after install

Wondering if anyone can help me with a problem

First, the hardware:

Mobo: Gigabyte CA-H55-USB3 (latest BIOS - F7)
CPU: i5-650
RAM: G-Skill DDR3 2x4GB (F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL)
HDD: Intel SSD X25-M 80GB (latest firmware)
Video: Onboard (using inetgrated graphics)

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Now the problem:

Insert disc and boot, no problem. Windows 7 sees the SSD and installs.

Once install completes, PC reboots and attempts to complete installation. Another reboot occurs now and upon restarting a message pops up saying that an error occurred and installation cannot continue and to start it all again.

Sometimes instead of rebooting it will flash different colours on the screen.

BIOS is set to AHCI (i have tried IDE as well, same problem)

Installing the OS to a normal SATA drive works OK.

Have tried using Acronis to clone the disk but this doesn't work, i'm assuming the 100MB partition Windows 7 creates may causes some problems when imaging and redeploying.

Please can anyone help?!?
