Windows 7: ***7 UL x32 install Freezes at first install step copying files 0%***

Did you format an Active partition in the SSD using the Commands given in Overcoming Windows 7 Installation Failures - Windows 7 Help Forums?

Quote:
6. At first installer screen Press Shift + F10, or enter System Recovery Options to open a Command Box, type:DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY ALIGN=1024
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
ACTIVE
EXIT
EXIT
I added the alignment command as a precaution, though it's not always necessary.

Try using diskpart to setup the new ssd first.

Yes I did I had the same problem, I did not try to use diskpart to set it up new though. I'm going to put the new hard drive back in and mess around with it some more. It's just going to waste at this point 64gb is 3 days of work. I almost wish I would've just bought the OEM drive from sony but on the other hand I can not see paying $400 for a 160gb drive that's just crazy.

Excuse me? Why did you say you'd gone through all of the steps when you ignored the most important one? Is there some reason why you couldn't complete the simple steps in Overcoming Windows 7 Installation Failures - Windows 7 Help Forums which resolve 90%+ of all installation problems? Why are you asking for our help if you wont' follow it, then ask for more help? It's really maddening, and wasting both of our time.

I followed those steps to the T I created a new Parton and it still wouldn't install. When he posted "try using diskpart to setup a new ssd I was assuming that was a different process than what I had done. Like I said I went through those steps... What in the hell would be the point of me asking for your help if I would just ignore it. I wanted to branch out to finally fix this issue

It created it saved I went to custom install used the Parton I created and it was the exact same end result. I then went to the hardware troubleshooting absolutely nothing resolved it. That link you sent me was the most help I've gotten and believe me I appreciated it. I am not trying to "madden" you nor am I trying to waste mine or your time

OK Matt. Can you please go back through the steps to make sure you didn't miss anything, just to be sure?

Normally we hear about questions or failures working through the steps which can help provide clues.

Did you slave the SSD to your other PC, and will Win7 install on it? It will need to be a non-UEFI system. This will tell us a lot, and as a last resort we can help you force the install to boot on the Sony.

It doesn't look like you have a UEFI BIOS. Did you try resetting the BIOS to defaults on the Exit tab, save and Exit?

What are the exact settings offered on the Advanced tab?

Next, go to the Sony Support Downloads webpage for your model PC, look for a BIOS update and compare it to the version shown on the Main tab. Look at the changes offered in the BIOS revision which might relate to SSD's. We can help you find this if you need it, and install it if necessary.

Hey listen man I appreciate you taking the time to help me I really do. I'm going to swap the drive with a new one. When I get it back if it still doesn't work then I'll be 100% positive that I'm doing something wrong because according to the link you sent me plus thousands of other people. Installing windows by creating a new oration and doing a clean install that was should defiantly work. So I'll check back probably in 3-4 days depending on shipping. Thanks again and sorry if It came off as me ignoring your suggestions.
All the best,
Matt

OK Matt, but chances are something in these steps you've been given would have resolved it, as they do for everyone else. What's required here is thoroughness, being engaged with the troubleshooting steps. We won't let down our end, but we can't do it for you.

For example, I just gave you several more steps. No acknowledgement is given of them, no engagement, just surrender. If you're actually doing each of these thing - if you went and checked how dated your BIOS version is, for example - then you would without question eventually get it installed since we have a 100% success rate here with cooperation.

I know I'm not expecting anyone to do it for me. I had questions weather or not this drive was actually new seeing the warranty sticker is pealed. While it's still under warranty and there willing to replace it I'm going to go for it. First thing I will do when it gets back is a clean install again following those steps. I will check back in after that. I know I keep saying it but thank you for all the help.
