Windows won't boot from SSD

Had the same problem. Looked in the repair log and the problem was a bad Symantec update. A file that went with Norton Fire wall was corrupt.

I suggest what Bare Foot did.
You have started the wrong way and could take a long time to fix it.
Restart from scratch:
- Detach all HDDs
- Attach the SSD to SATA 0 port
- On BIOS, configure SATA to AHCI , not IDE mode.
- Boot from the Windows 7 install media.
- Go to Advanced, erase all partitions on the SSD and then install Win 7. It will format and also align.

After installation:
Type this cmd
fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

It will give you one of two results, either a 0 or a 1. A zero indicates that TRIM is enabled correctly, a one means that it is not. If you have a TRIM-compatible SSD, but find that Windows 7 hasn't enabled the command, you can easily do so by running this command:
fsutil behavior set DisableDeleteNotify 0
