Windows 7: Unable to get fresh install of Windows 7 on SSD

I'm about out of ideas, other than motherboard itself being bogus.

I'd wait for more comments.

Only other things I can think of is stuff like using a single RAM stick or maybe downloading a fresh ISO from mydigitallife.info, rather than using what you think is a Technet ISO. But that's really reaching.

I assume you don't get any farther if you bypass diskpart and just boot into the install disk and stay in the graphical interface? How far do you get if you do that? To the "where do you want to install Windows screen"?

I hooked the SSD back up to my PC with it being the only SATA device connected and still received the same errors.

Does the fact that I am running into these errors in Diskpart mean there is something wrong with the mobo?


Have a look at the tutorial linked below for some ideas.

Where do you want to install windows and then no matter which method i go with:

Unallocated Disk 0
Active Partition created in Diskpart

It always fails immediately after that on the next screen when copying system files with the Windows was unable to create partition.

Then brings me back to where do you want to install windows screen and it has 2 partitions 1 for 100mb and a 2 for the rest of the space.

But if i choose the 2nd partition it fails the same way.

And you get the same failures at the same point if you attempt to install Vista from a known good retail disc on to the SSD? I haven't re-read the entire thread, but do I recall that?

I'm just trying to eliminate your install disc as being part of the issue.

Barefoot thanks for the links.

I am worried if I use a method like the transfer method that I will run into issues down the road if there truly is a problem with the mobo.

I have read through the step by step threat previously and have done everything said in the thread except I keep running into errors in Diskpart either at the format stage or the clean stage.

Just now i was able to get passed the clean stage successfully but when I tried to format I got the Invalid Parameter error, i tried to clean again and received the I/O device error.

Is there anyway to check the event log from the command prompt?

Ignat when I use my Vista disk it fails at the same spot in the installation. Would the installation media have anything to do with Diskpart throwing out these intermittent errors?

Can you currently install any operating system to any type of drive on this motherboard? For instance, install Vista to a regular spinning drive?

If you get errors regardless of installation disk, regardless of OS, and regardless of destination disk, what are you left with?

I just attempted to format in Diskpart while using the Vista install disk and received a different error

Virtual Disk Service Error:
The file system is incompatible

Ignatz - I could wipe my old HD and try to install to that I suppose.
Wierdly enough when I hook my hard drive up and try to boot into windows I get a Disk Read Error press cntrl alt del to reset message.

Do you have another DVD drive you could swap in as a test to see if it's DVD-related?

Can you try with only one stick of RAM? If you get the same errors with stick A, repeat with stick B.

I'm just trying to eliminate each piece of hardware by trial and error if necessary.
