Windows 7 halting on installation on Intel 320 series

I just recently bought an Intel 320 Series 160GB SDD. I unplugged my other hard drives, and continued through installation as normal. At the last stage however, after registry updating my screen just goes blank, with my monitor not recognizing a resolution at all. Is the drive faulty? Or is something wrong with the motherboard compatibility? I've tried AHCI mode with no success, I've tried turning off other boot devices as suggested on other forums.

My motherboard is GA-EP45-UD3P. I have 4 GB DDR2 RAM, and an ATI Radeon 4870.

I really am lost here. Can anybody help out?

  1. Your motherboard is an older Gigabyte P45 model. Have you checked for driver and BIOS updates?
