Trouble with SSD Intel 530 120GB


Trouble with SSD Intel 530 120GB - BSOD into the end instalation Windows 7 (64/Home Premium). I use few CPU/motherboard (i5 3330+H77/ i5 4560+Z97), but the result is the same. If I use SSD(data) + HHD(windows) - system work, programms and games run perfect (they are in SSD).

Hello Irlander,

As I understand, when you try to install Windows to the SSD, it fails at the end of the installation.

Here are some initial recommendations that may help in this situation:

- Connect the SSD to the first/main SATA port of the motherboard.

- Make sure you are using updated BIOS in the motherboards.

- Update the SSD firmware.

- Try using a different SATA cable.

- Do a Secure Erase of the drive before installing the new OS.

- If possible, install the OS using a different source media (obtain a different Windows disk, or try installing an alternate OS and check if the issue persists).

For additional assistance, let us know the following:

- Model and BIOS version of the motherboard.

- Are you using a single SSD? or do you have multiple drives?

- Is this a new drive?

- Let us know any additional information about the process you followed and the actions you have tried to solve it.
