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?

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.
