What about the series of steps I gave you weeks ago to which you never replied?

The way we work here is we make suggestions based on seeing the same situation (in this case hundreds of times before) and then you try them and reply. You dropped the thread in the middle without full response to the steps I gave you, even though I had other steps to give when you replied.

Are you even aware yet that you have tried to install Win7 on a 32gb SSD chip on the hard drive which is meant to speed it up by containing the Cache file and sometimes the boot files to speed boot? This is not how the chip is meant to be used, although we have supported users who did successfully install to it.

When you're ready to proceed then report back on all steps already given so we can continue.

Work through the steps given from the top and let us know the results.

What is the status now of the install? Do you want to continue to try to install to the SSD or use it as it was intended which is covered in Install Windows on MSATA (SSD) Drive or if you have IRST in BIOS follow Install Windows on System with MSATA and ISRT

well uhmm.. i've been using it for a month now... and i haven't had any problems.... but however it takes a lil bit longer to load the user profile but other than that everything's fine... the system does boot up faster than what i earlier had...... hey i have a question... SSDs and flash drives (aka pen drives) both use flash storage.. right? then how come pen drives have a life time warranty and not SSDs..? thanks!
