Trying to do clean install on new ssd but error keeps coming up.

About a month ago my ssd failed and I sent it in to get a new one, I recently got a replacement and have been trying to do a clean install on the new drive but keep running into errors. I kept getting two different bluescreen errors and a text error telling me the drive was setup as GPT and as such windows cannot install onto it, so I converted it to MBR through the command prompt but still keep getting the bluescreen errors during the installation. I've attached pictures of the two errors below.

Hi -- Are you using a Win 7 System Builders disk for the installation? If not what are you using?

Answer bigmck's question first.

Are you trying to install Windows on your new SSD from within a Windows itself. If so you cannot do it that way.

Disconnect all hard drives except the new SSD & then start the computer & repeatedly hit one of the keyboard keys, usually f8, f12 or the Del key, which should open up the BIOS screen. Check to see if the SSD is recognised, set the DVD as the first boot device, then if necessary set Legacy mode for the installation. Save your BIOS settings & the computer will then shut down & restart, insert the DVD & the installation process should begin.

Ranger4, I am not trying to install from within windows, it was a factory sealed drive and never before used. I have already disconnected my storage drive and only the ssd remains plugged in, I have already checked and yes the drive is recognised by bios. The dvd drive is already the first boot device, just checked and bios is in legacy mode already.

Then you should be ready to install & all should go ahead. If the installation refuses to start then check the Windows DVD for scratches or other damage.

If you system is over clocked try using default settings in bios.

Ranger4, the disk looks perfectly fine and there aren't any issues with installation until part way through the install. error images are posted above.

Layback Bear, the system is not overclocked in any way and the bios is already in default settings.

Try taking one of your sticks of RAM out and see what happens. If you get the same error, try only the other stick of RAM. I found a couple references to bad RAM causing this problem. == I think the next thing that you should consider is that your Windows DVD is bad. You can download an ISO from a Torrent site just to see if that might be the problem. Download Windows 7 ISOs, Legally and for Free | PCsteps.com Stay in touch.

Set the bios to defaults by hitting the F5 key, save and exit by hitting the F10 key.

Setup the new drive by making and using a Partition Wizard Boot CD.

Boot from the disc.

Create a Primary install Partition, align it, mark it Active, Format it and remove the disc.

Drop your install disc in the tray and try your install again.
