Brand new Corsair 120g SSD drive. Windows 8 Pro install.

Upon installation I reformat drive, then get the "PC Ran Into Issues" error.

Try to create "New" same error.

Computer is the new 8 core AMD with GA-F2A85X-UP4 Socket FM2 ATX AMD Motherboard.

Any suggestions? Seems whenever the install disk tries to write on hard drive, install quits.

Try checking your mass storage/interface/ata mode is set to AHCI could have a different name.

Un-format your SSD ( delete the volume ). Windows will format, install the boot partition and the system OS all in one step. It is normally not necessary to have an un-formatted drive, but many people seem to run into this problem with new installs on SSD's when they are already formatted.

Ok. Thank you.

I previously had a Raid set up on this board before fresh install. Moved SSD into a port set up as ahci, and will try the unformatted ssd drive as well.

You folks are awesome!!!

When given the option for install destination should I choose to format or just let the install do its thing?
