  • Can't get windows installed onto the SSD?

    Help please.

    I can't get windows installed onto the SSD on an Acer Aspire One AOA110-AB from my usb stick. The windows installation on it previously messed up, I reinstalled on an NTFS partitiion only to discover it was unsuitable so I wiped it clean again.
    It won't format properly either from the windows USB stick but I have got hiren's boot cd on usb so i can use all the facilities on there. They don't seem to be working either even though I can format correctly to FAT32.

    Setup has determined that Drive c: is corrupted and cannot be repaired

    Press f3 to restart etc etc


    ^^^^
    That's the error I get when it's inspecting the drives right at the start of the installation. I can't get past it.

    What can I try next?

    Any help would be great.
    Thanks
    Baz

        Please describe what you did to correct the problem. That way when others search in the future and find this thread they don't just get "got it fixed" but an actual solution. Thanks.

          I made a bootable USB stick with an N lited version of windows on it. I streamlined the chipset, VGA, sound, and network drivers on it. The normal version of windows didn't work for some reason.
          Before I loaded it up I made sure I had the official Bios drivers Version 3309 from the acer website installed also via USB stick.
          That's about it really.

            I am having the same issue - I was going to install Windows 7 OS on here and ditch my Vista. Windows 7 won't recognize my Corsair 128 GB SSD drive. I boot into Vista and I can see it, format, assign a drive letter and read/write from it.

            Boot off the Windows 7 DVD, it sees my other drives but not this one. There are no drivers for this, so what do I do from here? I guess I could install Vista clean on the SSD and upgrade to W7 - but I'd rather get a clean tight W7 install if I could...

            I would LOVE some ideas here, as I would love to be able to install W7 on this SSD and watch it scream!!!

              I had a similar issue with a vertex 2 drive, the solution ended up being installing the latest firmware onto the drive. Have you tried that?

                  You're sorry for reviving a thread? Did you get your issue fixed?
