Looks like an SSD failure as I had suspected from the beginning.

It would be best to create a separate 30 gig (approximate) active partition in the beginning of the hard disk and name it C. If you do not want a 100 megs System Reserved Partition to be foisted on you during installation then please do not leave any unallocated on the disk.

Installing Windows 7 is a breeze and takes place almost unassisted.

Good Luck
