Problem boot up win7 for new MSATA SSD installation
yesterday i bought an PLEXTOR MSATA SSD 128M5M to be install in my Lenovo laptop Y460. Installed in my MSATA bay, BIOS are able to detect and show correct SSD Model. Go into window are able to detect SSD, initialized and install MBR.
When installing window 7 pro 64Bit it will prompt me for driver, i ignore it and it still can detect the SSD so i proceed to install the Windows 7 on SSD, after finish install window reboot to exit the setup mode. first time try to load window it freeze at boot screen so I restarted and was able to go into Windows 7.
update the Windows 7 and restart, it freeze again at bootscreen (this time have to restart few times in order to get into window). proceed to install driver (chipset, lan etc). restart the computer still freeze at boot screen.
at this point I thought could be 64bit issue, so i reinstall with Windows 7 32bit. same issue encountered prompting for the driver, I canceled it and proceed with Windows 7 install. after finish install still freeze at boot screen but this time worst cant even get pass boot screen no matter how many time I restarted the system.
what have been done
-updated to latest BIOS
-BIOS Setting for harddisk already set to AHCI
-re-sit the MSATA SSD
-install 32bit and 64bit Windows 7
-install chipset driver, intel storage driver, etc
Thank you in advance for any help.
Window prompt for driver during installation, which i never encounter before
Window freeze at boot screen
Boot in safe mode it will freeze at loading driver for atapi.sys

The error almost always means the installer is bad. Where did you get Windows 7? How is it burned to DVD or written to flash stick installer? Try another from Steps 1 and 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which will also show you how to get a perfect install.
Does your laptop have a UEFI BIOS, look at the settings in BIOS Setup by tapping the key given for that at boot. If so you'll need to follow special steps for UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with - Windows 7 Forums.
If not reset BIOS to defaults, set SATA controller to AHCI to try install. Unplug all other HD's and peripherals to try install. Delete all partitions on HD to create and format new. If that fails wipe the HD first with Diskpart Clean Command.
