I put an SSD in my Lenovo X60s laptop and the two do not seem to get along. I tried to install Windows 7 and 8 several times and I got several different errors, most often:
windows setup could not configure windows to run on this computer's hardware
Disk Read Failure press ctrl alt del
Page fault in nonpaged area
We couldn't install Windows on the Location you chose. Here's more info about what happened: 0x80300024
Also sometimes I cannot create a partition in Windows installer.
Things I tried so far:
Checking if my BIOS is the latest version.
Trying to load drivers for an Intel Raid controller. It didn't recognize them.
Switching to AHCI (this was the default). I also tried the other option, which is "Compatibility".
Removing the SSD after the installation to check what happend (the partitions were created but I could not open them).
Formatting the SSD in another computer and then trying to install Windows on an already formatted drive.
I also changed the RAM at the same time.
What could be the problem and how can I fix it?
Update: I also tried Ubuntu. It installed without errors but the first time I tried to shut it down it stuck on the Ubuntu logo. After a manual restart it gave me an error:
error: unknown filesystem
