View Full Version : Can't install win 8 on ssd with g75vw

Took out original hd, put in ssd in slot 0. Install win 8. Reboot, black screen. Nothing. Attemp to repair via cd, and I get cannot find boot device, missing boot options in bios,

I've installed a least 12 times with no luck. After the first reboot, the win installation is present in recovery command prompt, it just won't boot to it.

I've done th bootrec, bcdedit, etc. even went back to win7 to "prep" the boot sector. Nothing works with win 8. The win 7 install was perfect.

The win 8 DVD is good, used it yesterday on a diff system (with a diff key - I bought 2 from ms)

i think you can search from here, i saw some people sharing how to install win 8 in SSD in here.
if not help, i think you will send to service center to eng to install or check it, because you said can not find device in BIOS. also you can flsh BIOS and load default try again.
