Did you create the partition you did the install to smaller than the SSD; did the installer create the "System Reserved" partition or is the new install on a single partition?

You could be right re the SSD drive although from a quick look round google etc they cant be updated properly as Kingston don't provide firmware updates...only through Intel which don't work on all drives..!

Also I have just tried installing driver updates for Marvell 91xx and graphics card and windows install wont boot again even after system restore....never ever had this much trouble trying to set a system up..!

Try uninstalling each driver in error in Device Manager to see if it starts, then update those drivers.

I am starting to think maybe theres a problem with either the motherboard or memory or could it just be the SSD drives but seeing as im having so much trouble installing to a normal sat drive makes me wonder..!

Unplug all other drives and peripherals to try install.

Try installing to another HD/SSD.

Test your HD by running maker's diag/repair extended CD scan: HD Diagnostic

Remove all but 2gb or RAM to try install, swap your RAM, Test your RAM: RAM - Test with Memtest86+
