i know this is few days late but you haven't mentioned the windows version in question.
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.
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!!!
