Installing Vista on a SSD Tags: Hard Drives SSD Windows Vista Motherboards Storage Last response: January 29, 2010 12:56 AM in Storage Share chocobo7572k5 January 28, 2010 6:39:57 PM Hello, I'm looking for help in installing Vista Ultimate SP1 x64 on to a SSD. The motherboard bios does see the drive, but the Vista installer does not see the drive at all. I've tried IDE/ AHCI, and Raid but nothing shows on the installer. Is it true that Vista can not do a direct install? What steps will I need to take to install Vista on to the SSD? Motherboard: Gigabyte P55A-UD3 SSD: Patriot M28 256gb (Samsung Controller) More about : installing vista ssd chocobo7572k5 January 29, 2010 12:56:32 AM I also tried installing with Win7 Ultimate and like Vista does not see the SSD. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
