I've been using this system for a year now and only recently decided to clean it all up from the dust it's been collecting. I formatted my SSD and HDD so I can start fresh as well ... problem is, it won't complete its' installation? Did I plug something wrong? I know I tried doing a RAID setup between the SSD and HDD to form one drive first but it did the same thing so I changed the BIOS to default settings and still nothing - shouldn't it work?

I recommend to do:
1) Only connect the SSD and DVD for install the win7, after done the installation and reconnect the 1TB HDD back.
2) After boot the PC, go to the BIOS setup AHCI for the storage mode. And DVD 1st boot, SDD 2nd boot. Saving and exit. Reboot the PC and install the win7.

I tried changing the boot priority to my SSD and unplugged my HDD for now. I did a clean or fresh Windows 7 installation you would call it. The only thing I didn`t do is remove the Windows 7 CD ... the tray kind of closed by itself on the below screen while I had it opened freely ... didn't remove CD hehe. Now ... should I try removing it now or what should I do?

It`s stuck on the following screen. HDD not plugged in. CD in drive still.

You should not change to boot priority to my SSD, you have to change the boot priority order: DVD-1ST, then SDS-2nd for installation OS.
In the screen, I think it should be after reboot during the installation, but not done the installation yet, then the PC stuck on that screen.
Also I want to make sure do you delete those partitions ( 100mb and 55GB ) during the installation, I mean like the 3rd image you put on before. If you don't and I need delete them.

That was weird ... for some reason, as soon as I unplugged my brother's MP3 player - it booted !!! yayy .... now, I plugged my HDD back in. The BIOS recognizes it although while I'm on my desktop, I can't find it beside my C: drive ... where is it? :S I fixed it be assigning it a Drive in Disk Management.

Last problem to be solved ... my computer won't recognize any Internet connection. I know it's not the wire because no wireless connections are showing up either. I installed both LAN driver (from the mobo CD drivers) and the PCI Wirelress adapter's driver. Anyone know what's up?

The LAN connection shows identifying every so often and stops right away if that helps any of you.
