    ^Also, don't forget that loading optimized will reset your BIOS settings, including resetting AHCI to IDE. ^^

    Can you enter Windows from SAFE MODE...press F8? Hopefully, Rapid Storage Driver will not load.

    (1) What Kingston SSD are you using?

    (2) With the SSD disconnected, would you run Memtest?

    Also, try turning off the power saving feature that puts drives to sleep. Select "never."

    1) Memory is not the problem, I can still boot my old drive perfectly fine and run my other install of 7 perfectly fine the only problem here is mobo + drivers. Like I said windows will run just fine on the SSD without installing the RST drivers.

    2) Kingston SSD now V 128gb

    3)Havent tried safe mode, will try as soon as I get home and report back.

    4)As for profjim post, I will try some of the steps mentioned in your post but why couldn't you install RST on your mobo?

    5)I forgot to mention im using the latest 10.6 intel RST drivers

    Whatever the issue, the RST is likely the culprit in your situation. At least confirm that you can shut down and restart and load Windows properly several times without the driver.

    You may have to run driver verifier and BSOD/dump readers here to diagnose your issue. There's probably some sort of conflict at the driver level. I don't think this is a hardware issue.

    Hardware and Drivers Forum

    This is a great forum to ask about conflicts within the Windows environment. Someone there can explain to you how to run the program, which was included in your Windows installation--you already have it installed. And they can help you to understand what the crash dumps say. The purpose of this program is to find the conflict, cause your system to crash, and leave behind a crash dump file so you can tell what driver is causing the problem. You need administrator rights to run it and end it. Once you start, it will run until it finds a crash. It is like a stress test for your driver.

    There are some issues that they may not be able to help you with. For instance, they can't help you with the slow Win7 installation issue. I have only ever experienced slow installation of Windows when I tried to install onto a system that was not stable. But other people have had this issue when their system was stable. Microsoft does not have a solution at this time for your problem there. IF they do, please tell me. ^^;

    ...

    One thing you might try is to uninstall this driver. Restart. Press F8 to reenter Safe Mode. And then reinstall the driver in Safe Mode. See if that helps.

    Question. If you uninstall the Intel driver, do you think you would be able to enter the Windows environment again?

    ^ I should have mentioned...

    The reason I think the problem is software and not hardware is because you seem not to have trouble using the SSD in Safe Mode... If you can use it, then it may not be faulty... Your trouble occurs when you try to access the normal Windows environment...
