I have the same problem as you, exactly. I used this system to load windows onto a new Vertex 4, i even took the vertex 4 to another pc and it booted fine, with a clean install of windows, it just wont boot to it even though it is listed everywhere in the bios.
Here is my set up.
Asus p8z77 v pro/thunderbolt
G.Skill Ripjaws 16GB (PC3 12800 8x2) recommended for z77 boards
OCZ Vertex 4 256G
