I purchased a new Toshiba s500 laptop and installed a OCZ Vertex Series SATA II 60 GB SSD , but cannot install Windows 7 64 bit Pro on it. The laptop gives these errors : link and link . For installing Windows, I cloned the HDD(fresh out of the laptop box) onto the new SSD and performed an install for factory settings. I also the upgraded the BIOS to the latest version from the toshiba website(booting from the HDD). How can I install Windows 7 into this from a DVD because Toshiba doesn't give any DVDs.
Check in the BIOS settings that AHCI is either turned on or off, because if the Factory Restore image was made with AHCI off, and you are cloning it to your new drive with it on, there will be problems, primarily bluescreens of death. Also, try installing Windows 7 off of a DVD if you can borrow someone's install DVD as this will rule out my previous tip.
