Windows 7: New SSD, stuck at startup motherboard screen

I was talking to a friend who has the same laptop as me and he made a good suggestion. Why not put it in my laptop through my 2nd hard drive slot. So I did that and installed windows 7 with no problems. The laptop restarted and boom, windows 7 loaded under the SSD, like a fresh copy. So now I know it works on the new ssd. I took the SSD out of the laptop and put it in my tower and now I have this problem.... After 35 secs of sitting on the motherboard screen, it flys by the setup tab option, (detects everything) and where Windows is suppose to be loading... It gives me this:

I have a asus p5kc motherboard, and never has it sat at the splash screen for longer than 5 secs. Now its 35ish before it does anything.

War Hawk,

Can BIOS on the Asus P5KC see the SSD drive ? You might want to update the Drivers on your board . Make sure the SSD drive is the only drive connected to the SATA ports on your motherboard. Plug in your SSD to the SATA-0 PORT on your motherboard.

Yes the bios can recognize the SSD. I havent plugged it in the sata 0 port yet tho. The only thing I have connected other than it is the CD/DVD player that has no cd in it.

Odd thing here: I took the the HD out of my laptop and put in the SSD (so it starts up alone by itself), that now has windows 7 on it.... I started up my laptop and it Beeped and that last link i posted, the black screen with the symbols, That came up on my laptop and wouldnt go past it.

WarHawk ,

Put the laptop hard drive back into the laptop. Plug the SSD back to the desktop. See if you could create a bootable USB flash drive USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create hopefully your laptop isn't running Windows XP . Cause the tutorial will not work. XP doesn't see a flash drive in diskpart .

Partition Magic is not supported in Windows 7 and never has been.

If what you're trying to do is write the Windows 7 ISO to flash stick use UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive which always works for me.

Then boot the Windows 7 installer using the BIOS Boot Menu key to choose it under USB, Removable or HD's - you may need to expand a listing to see the stick.

During custom install delete all partitions using Drive Options shown in Steps 6/7 of Clean Install Windows 7 , create New as you wish, install Windows 7 to first parrtition ignoring the small boot partition it creates.

There are other steps here to assure you get a perfect install, same as for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

ok, I was able to wipe the SSD clean with the toolbox OCZ has for that SSD on their website. I burned a ISO to the usb plugged it in and the problem im having now is: After I choose to boot from it, or the DVD I made it goes to a black screen and no longer am I getting the gibberish as I was in the screen shot I provided BUT now im getting BOOTMNGR is missing, press cntl+alt+del to restart. I even tried installing windows 7 onto the SSD with my laptop, it will boot just fine with my Laptop HD in it, but when the SSD is by itself, thats the message I get. My laptop is also running Windows 7. When both of my hard drives are in it, I can boot from the windows 7 version off the SSD with no problems but as soon as the SSD is by itself, I get the BOOTMNGR is missing message.

The error you're getting means the installer is not booting, so it's either not been burned or written correctly or you're not booting it since it is instead trying to boot the HD. It should normally even boot itself if the HD is wiped, so it may be written or burned badly.

If you wrote a confirmed ISO to flash stick using UltraISO as given then it should always boot, providing you're tapping the correct key to trigger the one-time BIOS Boot menu, with the HD set first to boot in BIOS setup. Flash sticks are listed on the Boot Menu under USB, Removable or HD's You may need to expand a listing to see the stick name. Then select it and see if it loads. If not describe exactly what happens.

If you have a confirmed good ISO and disk that won't boot in another PC either, then burn another DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed.

If you got the windows installed onto the SSD . But can't log into windows . Try this Bootmgr is missing - Fix with just the SSD plugged in . The link I provided should fix your bootmgr is missing press ctrl+alt+del to restart error .
