Windows 7: Lenovo Ideapad Z585 & Win 7 Home Premium 64bit SSD issue

Lenovo Ideapad Z585 & Win 7 Home Premium 64bit SSD issue

Hello all,

Pardon my weak grammar & spelling as English is not my mother tongue.

4-5 days ago I try to upgrade my Lenovo Ideapad Z585 with 120 gig SSD but much to my dismay, Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit did not install successfully, something about "unable to install" ( I typing this from memory, sorry).

At first, the technician suspected the Intel SSD 120 gig is not compatible with AMD chipset in my Lenovo so I change to Corsair 128 gig but error is still the same during clean installation. AHCI is enabled in BIOS too.

But it remains a frustrating mystery for me.

Can anyone in the forum shed some light on this?

Thank you for your time & attention.
