I know this topic is covered all over but I am unable to get anything to work so I thought I'd start a thread and see if anyone can help me.
I'm doing this for my boss, normally I don't have any issues doing simple things like this but this one has me stumped!
Intel 530 series SSD
HP pavilion HPE
I've tried what seems like a million things here but I'll explain the problem.
Problem-Unable to see the SSD in windows 7 installer
Friend wants a fresh install on this hard drive, that's it!
I have set the bios to AHCI
BIOS can see the Hard drive
I even installed the new SSD on my personal desktop, formatted the drive and was able to use it just fine.
While the SSD was in my desktop, I decided to run the windows 7 installer and it can see the drive JUST FINE! I did not attempt to install Windows to the drive though as I know different motherboards will cause problems.
What I need: Windows 7 to see this SSD so that I can install Windows 7!
Please help before my boss puts his boot up my behind! lol
