Windows 7: Installing Windows 7 on a SSD, 2 different behaviours

26 Mar 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bits

So, I tried to install the RAID drivers and pretty much every drivers I found on the Asus website, with no success. I even tried to put the SATA ports on AHCI mode with the same unsuccessful result. I tried with both DVD of Win7 I have, the old one and the ISO I burned.

I don't know what to do anymore. Any idea ?

Oh, I got a new error BTW, it is called 0x8007048F with the same "cannot access files" related message.

It seems that some people had problems with their DVD Burner with the same error and my DVD Burner was having an odd behaviour when installing, sometimes just stopped or would not load the DVD doing some CRACK sounds : Reoccuring install error 0x8007048F [solved] - Win Toolkit - Forums

I will try to find a 4Go USB key tomorrow at work and try to install booting from USB.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bits

Sooooo, I think my initial problem was solved by using the RAID driver as explained above. Then I had that 0x8007048F error and this one was solved by installing from a USB key. It seems that either my DVD is too old or the DVD I burnt was corrupted.

Everything is fine now.

I used the downloaded ISO file and ran the installation with all my RAID array connected but I disconnected my old system HD. Then I reconnected it but only after the installation so it took the letter G:.

Thanks for your help !

You may need to unplug that DVD drive if it interferes further.
