Windows 7: Unable to install Windows 7 on W520 with OCZ Vertex 3

In addition can you try DVD install? The driver prompt almost always means a bad installer since all modern AHCI storage drivers are in the installer.

Try writing ISO to stick again using Universal USB Installer.

What i've meant is i've tried to use the latest driver for the chipset from the manufacturer's website to see if that would fix the problem.

I've just checked golden's solution on the internet and i've found something from the OCZ website:

How to set up Windows on a VERTEX - OCZ Forum Wiki

it says : "VERTEX works best in IDE mode but AHCI is supported. "

Maybe that is the problem. I'll try an installation in IDE as soon as i get home (in 6 hours...)

The USB bootable windows is working fine i've been able to install perfectly on an ohter 2.5" HDD to be able to use the computer while trying to fix the problem.

Hi!

Finaly after speaking with OCZ and not being able to install anything on the SSD and an awful support from Lenovo, I've tried IDE, SATA, Only 2go RAM, DVD, USB bootable, Safe Erase from OCZ, Normal erase from windows, 3 Different ISO, Drive test doing fine, Upgrading Bios and SSD firmware, i've came to the idea of the problem with the sandforce interface. I've checked online and multiple persons had problems with disks with sandforce. I've RMA the Vertex 3 to Newegg and bought a Crucial M4 (a Marvel SSD). At my first Windows 7 professional 64 bits attempt, everything worked perfectly. Here are the numbers I am getting. I've checked online and that is around the average numbers. Thank you very much for you guys for your help!
