Windows 7: Installing Windows 7 on a SSD, 2 different behaviours

Installing Windows 7 on a SSD, 2 different behaviours

Hello all,

Small question here, if you don't mind.

I am currently trying to install Windows 7 on a new SSD harddrive. I already have a Windows 7 installer on an IDE drive but I want to create a new system drive on the SSD. My SSD is in a RAID layer that account 2 other drives linked in RAID1 but the SSD is not a RAID drive itself.

When starting the installation from the DVD, booting on the DVD, I have many errors like I/O errors and files not found errors (0xc00000e9, 0x800703EE, 0x80070003). But if I start the installation from my already installed Windows 7 system, then no problem.

It seems that when starting the installation from Windows 7, the installer check for updates online, so it downloads the correct drivers or whatever patches it needs to complete the installation correctly.

Is there any way to get those updates on a DVD so that I can do a fresh install booting from the DVD ? I tried to download the last Windows 7 ISO files but not sure if that will solve the problem. The X17-58996.iso didn't change anything. Which one is the most recent one ?

Well, thanks a lot if you can answer those few questions !

This is exactly what I tried during the last 2 days and it doesn't change anything. The ISO is exactly the ISO I use.

And how do I tell the installer to use them during the installation from DVD boot ?

I don't really understand. I have no problem seeing my SSD. Is this tool useful to load any drivers ?

You can load any driver, like your RAID drivers.

Let us know if that resolves it. Windows 7 has never liked RAID very much, and in most cases it isn't really needed with built-in drive imaging.

However since you say install completes when run from the OS (even though it locks out the C letter which makes that method undesirable) there may be something to the lack of RAID drivers.

Try also unplugging all other drives unrelated to the RAID, including the other OS drive.

If it persists I would ask what real benefits are conferred by the RAID, consider unRAIDING and installing only to target HD with all others unplugged.
