REQ Hel installing Windows U7 Ultimate or windows 7 Profecional

Hello My name is Tanel.
I did buy new computer.

Computer has new Asus Rampage 3 extreem motherboard
i use OCZ-VERTEX2 ATA Device (111 GB, IDE) 120Gb SSD
And i am trying to install winows there.
Tho evry time installation goes thro like it should Step by step installation shows completed on those steps:

# Copying Windows files (Done)
# Expanding Windows files (Done)
# Installing features (Done)
# Installing updates (Done) After this computer reboots
# Completing installation (Not Done)

And then as windows installation requiers 1 restart it will make that.
Occures for split second this window:

Uploaded with

and then computer will instantly restarts again.(like endles restarts).
Time to time will ocure the windows that tels me that windows did not close normaly last time and how i want to start computer giving me options like to start computer in safe mode etc.
When i select option start with safe mode this is what i get:

I contacted Asus and OCZ and from asus i received this info:

You will need to preinstall Intel's 5 series inf files.
It is located in Intel
Read carefully the ReadMe.txt file on how to proceed on installing the file. It is a long procedure however everything is straight forward :_)
Obviously more and more users can't install Windows 7 on these newer motherboards although Microsoft has "reportedly" update there drivers list.
i need to try this tho buy trying to do as instructed im stuc at one point(see my previous post and instructions that came with mentioned post)

Note! I was able to install Windows XP Home Edition SP1 to that SSD and upgarde that to SP3 tho it is 32 bit version.

Note! I did try to install both Windows 7 Pro and Windows 7 ultimate from CD/DVD and from USB i am getting same error all the time.

Windows 7 Ultimate

Installing to Windows on any hard drive or ssd should be the same as far as i know.
I SSD was empty (i delated partitions and created new partition)
So i can turn from bios off USB-s
And i can remove my Kngston usb from system.
It has windows 7 ultimate (bootable).
i got it on the dvd also
I can try that i did set hard drive configuration in bios as IDE

BIOS version is:

Hard drive settings (in this case SSD)

I can set USB conf in disabled in BIOS if needed

In BIOS there is also SATA controller menus under Onboard Devices Configuration

There is Onboard SATA Controller (can be set Disabled or enabled status).
This enables or disables from my motherboard 3 ICH10R Serial ATA connectors
and there is also a Onboard SATA6G Controller (Can be set to IDE, AHCI mode or enable or disable mode).

I noticed that Under advanced there is also a Onboard USB 3.0 controller that can be set to enabled or disabled status.

When i start Windoes 7 Ultimate installation this is what i get:

Your installation is already going to be faster than normal, so just do it from DVD. Assuming you have a valid one!

To prep for installation follow this guide
SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation - Windows 7 Forums

Then for installtion follow this guide:
