Whenever I try to use the windows tool Steps are as follows:
Choose Iso File
Choose media type USB
Status Formatting (NTFS)
We were unable to copy your files. Please check your USB device and try again
So I burned a DVD using the tool instead and it states Windows cannot format a partition on Disk 0
This is a clean Hard drive no partitions at all on it
I reset BIOS and CMOS again only changed the date and time with the same issue, I then did as advised earlier in using Disk drive in port 5 as IDE and left SSD as AHCI in port 2 and the same thing ocurred. The only time windows will pass xopying windows files is if the entire SSD is 'system reserved' and then after about 20 minutes after trying fail completely at 0%.
I purchased 2BG RAM just for installation just in case 8GB sticks are too much, the only way windows will even pass 0% is in EMS? mode and it looks like safe mode on boot?
So your DVD is not original or it's scratch
There is certainly something amiss I agree 66.
I can only surmise that the OS disc is corrupted, scratched or no longer usable. If a OS is not legit the application will not create a USB install device. But it tells you that. If the USB device is to small for the OS the application flags that as a problem, I have never seen the error described by the OP and wonder if his USB device is borked
This one has me stumped.
LOL legit just means an ISO that has not be altered or changed so much that the application does not reject it.
Bart I honestly have no idea what or why is preventing you from installing OS on that SSD. If you have an OS installed some other place maybe use HDclone and just clone the entire OS drive onto that SSD. This problem has me stumped big time.

After a bit of diskpart magic i finally got Windows onto a USB as a bootable drive, can't test until tomorrow however that's a step in the right direction!
I had problems with the Win 7 usb tool as well. I however discovered another program thats similar/better imo. I'll have to check back after work with the info, but it'll let you slipstream updates and drivers and service packs into the install, as well as make Bootable usb drives.
