Doesnt seem to work for me, Transfered files sucessfullly but on that same window it doesnt show any allocated space to download from. Method 2 is just confusing so im not even sure if i want to attempt it
ok few questions
1 does your computer have a floppy installed. if yes then ur ok if no then make sure floppy mode is off in bios
2 check to see if your hd is set for ahci mode if it is then you may need some drivers for that
they could be whats causing the problem
I am having the same problem - Windows install won't detect my new OCZ Vertex 2 SSD. I have tried the following:
Downloading drivers from Asus website and clicking the "load drivers" button in the install.
Downloading drivers from Intel website and clicking the "load drivers" button in the install.
Updating the bios of my notebook.
Updating the firmware for the SSD (no new firmware release as yet, apparently it was due on 1st June 2010.)
Ghosting the original drive to the SSD - just a normal "disk to disk" ghost. I'm not sure exactly what happened, if it copied fully or it didn't, but there were no error messages. "Missing operating system" (still) after doing this and trying to boot from the SSD.
There are virtially no options for anything in the BIOS apart from boot order. No "ide mode" or "AHCI mode".
There is only 1 HDD bay in this laptop, there is usually two but this model has extra ram slots in the second hdd bay (hence the 8gb ram - 4 x 2gb).
The hdd detects in the bios and is useable if plugged into another working machine, either internally or via a usb cadddy.
Yes, go with a USB Boot disk: much easier and faster loading of Windows 7.
You can download the USB tool for free and copy your Windows 7 ISO to the USB. Complete instructions can be found here: http://store.microsoft.com/Help/ISO-Tool
