    You should not need to install a driver, what model of OCZ SSD are you using? A few older models are not compatible with Haswell systems.

    Otherwise, the driver you could use is this one from your board's download page: SATA Floppy Image ver:12.8.0.1016

    Ignore the "Floppy" thing, when you unzip the download file, put the six or seven files on the root/main folder of a USB flash drive and put it in a USB 2.0 port.

    Windows should recognize the flash drive and drivers.

    Thanks for the reply, It is an OCZ Agility 3,

    I have been doing some more research and a few people talk about possibly a corrupt ISO that I used to burn the 8.1 cd. I am going to re-download the ISO and give that a try.

    Will update later.

    Many older model ssd's are not compatible with and will not work with Haswell systems.

    A web search using haswell ssd problems will provide more information.

    I believe the OCZ Agility 3 is compatible with haswell as I have seen other peoples build part list that includes both haswell and the agility 3.

    can anyone confirm either way?

    The agility 3 uses the SF-2281 controller.

    The Agility 3 should be fine with the 2281 controller, it is the Vertex 2 that is not compatible with Haswell, or any SSD that uses the Sandforce 1200 controller.
