Can`t install Windows 7 on my Macbook Pro, need help
I have some problems with my windows installation and would like your help beacuse i can`t figure what i`m doing wrong and it`s very frustrating.
So, like i said i`ve tried to install Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on my Macbook Pro 13" (mid 2010) with a brand new "Intel X-25-M 80Gb SSD" which i have just replaced from the older Hitachi HDD.
I had no problems at all installing win 7 on the HDD so the problem came after i put the SSD in the Macbook.
This is what i have done so far,
1. Created a windows partion in Bootcamp from OS X.
2. Starting the win 7 installation DVD and choose language, time etc.
3. When asked for upgrade or custom i choose custom install.
Now here`s the problem, when i`m asked where i wan`t to install windows there are no drives at all in the list, it`s completely empty and it`s also asking me for the needed drivers??
I have done some research myself and have found that several others having the same problem, that the installation manager isn`t detecting any disk. There is more info in this thread from Apple support forum:
Apple - Support - Discussions - 2010 13" MBP 2.4GHz. No support for 3rd ...
I`m not sure if this really is a Windows, Intel or Apple issue but thought i would post here if maybe someone else having the same problem and have a fix for it.
Thanks in advance.
