Stuck at "Completing installation" install windows 7 on new SSD.

I bought a new SSD today.It is a kingston v+200 60gb.so I want to install windows 7 on my new ssd.I already have 2 HDD installed.One had the old windows 7.so I install the SSD and do a complete rewiring of my pc because its to messy.Then hooked up everything except the 2 old HDD.

So i go to the bios and change the boot priority to my dvd drive but i notice that is doesnt detect my ssd.I just proceed changing the setting to AHCI for TRIM.Then reboot and go to the BIOS again.Now it detect my SSD.So i proceed install windows 7.

On the "Where to install windows",It says something like "windows cant install on the drive" (cant remember).I reboot the pc and enter the setup again and it went fine.

After reboot once,it stuck at "completing installation".my mouse pointer wont hover.Tried reinstalling it twice but still stuck there.So i unplugged my ssd and just connect to my old HDD that has windows 7.but now when it boot up on my old HDD,it stuck on "starting windows".Did i do something wrong?

Win7 on old HD won't start because you changed SATA controller to AHCI. Change it back to IDE to start old HD or Enable AHCI in Windows 7 / Vista - Windows 7 Forums .

You are likely not triggering BIOS setup correctly as is the case 90% of the time it fails to boot. If it continues to fail Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS.

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Boot into BIOS setup to enable Legacy BIOS if present. Next check BIOS Boot order for an EFI Boot Disk and if present remove it, set DVD drive first to boot, HD second. Then set SATA controller to AHCI. Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed OS version here. I would use new media.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10 to open a Command Box, type:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400 (for 100gb partition, adjust as desired)
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
ACTIVE
EXIT
EXIT

Next click Install Now to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

I gave you a link that shows how to Enable AHCI in Windows 7 / Vista - Windows 7 Forums.

Unplug the AHCI HD while doing this. Boot IDE HD to make changes, then reboot into BIOS to set to AHCI.
