I’ve just purchased aSanDisk Extreme 120Gb SSD (model SDSSDX-120G-G25), and when attempting to install Windows 7 I get a error “Setup was unable create a new system partition or locate an existing partition” when selecting the partition to install to.
I’ve already tried various DISKPART commands to clean the drive, create the partition, format to NTFS and make it active, but to no avail.
I’ve also made sure no other drives are connected except the DVD drive for my Windows disc.
I’m using a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3 motherboard, plugged into one of the ICH9R Southbridge SATA ports, and I’ve switched AHCI mode on already.
Anybody have any ideas before I send the drive back?
