Problem installing Win7 on Crucial M4 SSD

Not sure if this is the best board for this query, and if it's not please point me in the right direction. Okay, so I have a homebuilt desktop with an ASUS P6T mobo. Everything seems to be working correctly hardware-wise; my old boot HDD was working fine. I just decided to swap it out with a 256 GB Crucial M4 SSD, however, and I can't get the installation to work. Mobo recognizes the drive, and the Win7 installer sees it. When I try to actually install, the "Copying files:" dialog stays at 0% for about 2 minutes, and then it immediately goes to "Expanding Files". When the system reboots, I get a fatal error. I made sure to set my mobo to AHCI mode and to enable ACPI. Any thoughts?

  1. not sure what could be causing the problem but I would suggest making sure you have the latest bios update for the motherboard and also the latest firmware for the SSD.
