Hoping for (a lot) of help.
I have built a new rig:
Samsung SSD 830 256 gb SATA III
NVidia GTX 560ti 1GB
Bulldozer AMD 8120
Liteon Blu Ray read/writer
32GB Corsair Vengeance 1600 mhz RAM
I have tried every known configuration to install windows on SSD Samsung 830 256gb however have had no success in nearly 4 days. I know for certain that the SSD is fine as I have a second PC that is pretty basic and is SATA II which installed first time no issues at all.
I either get 1 of 2 issues... Windows cannot create a partition, windows cannot expand files past 0% and hangs. I have loaded AHCI drivers when loading windows, tried several different ISO files, tried BIOS with IDE, AHCI and RAID, used 2 different dvd drives with the same issues, unplugged every non essential item. I also bought a 2gb RAM stick at 1066 mhz to make sure that there is no issue regarding RAM size etc and tried every DIMM slot.
Has anybody got a successful BIOS combination as it definitely isn't hardware as this has all been tested.
