Thanks for your comment. I was not aware of that solution. Do you happen to have a link for it? (Or is it this? modern.ie )

comment Reinstalling Windows 8 (on a new drive) without install disc?
FWI, I was able to do a clean install of Windows 8 directly. No need for the Windows 7 discs or serial.

Yeah but if I forget about it next time, I likely won't remember to unplug the projector. ;-) Anyway, one week lost to this problem, I hope I won't forget.

Oh OK. It's just I'm not very used with the term "SSD" (like I'm with the term "HDD") so I thought it would make it clearer. ^^ Fixing it.

comment Windows 7/8 installation fails on a SSD
@TFM: a) what tool should I use for this bad sector check? Like I said, I ran Chkdsk and it found nothing, but it doesn't present me with any option when I start it. b) how can I install the OS in not from the CD drive? My BIOS (ASUS P5Q) doesn't present me with an option to boot from USB. Would it work if create a small new partition on the SSD, copy the Windows install files on the new partition, boot from it and install Windows on the other SSD partition?

@CarlB: the SSD is plugged and running. I am able to access its content and everything seems fine. I just ran the "Error Checking" tool (from Windows) on it and it found no error.

@BenVoigt: It's a Samsung 840 PRO. I had the choice between two models and I picked the more expensive, because it was supposed to be faster (on writing) and (supposedly?) of better quality. But before I return it I'd like to be sure that the fault really is on the SSD.
