    Yes, Windows installer should be able to deal with it.

    I had the same thing as you. I used diskpart, until it would get to point that when I booted up Windows installer would not repair "that type of disk" sort of thing and I tried Samsung Magician, then finally resorted to parted magic.
    Truth is you shouldn't have to do any of that crap.

    It was purely by accident and as a last resort that I unplugged the SSD's from the Intel ports and plugged them into the "spares" and was successful installing Windows. But like I said, -and here's the really bad part- I had to leave the drives on the Marvell ports because when I would move them back to the intel ports the problems would start all over again.

    Throughout all of it I had the best luck just wiping drives and letting Windows Installer do all the rest. Trying to clean/partition the SSD's made no difference for me.

    When I first installed Win7-64 on my 840 Pro 512GB (GA-Z87X-UD4H) my seq reads and writes were in the 350's Intel, 370's - 380's on Marvell sockets.

    I saw my screen going black every time I booted Windows.

    So, because this is a new build and I am still learning on it, I slurped off all my data and did a clean install. I used the Windows installer to delete each partition, then installed Windows brand new to the SSD. I have no other SSD's or HD's on the rig yet.

    Everything works properly now. On Intel SATA ports I'm getting 557 seq read, 528 seq write. So something was wrong before and all is right now.

    My note to myself is that back in the early 1990's I kept the Win 3.11 distribution diskettes on a HD so I could reinstall Windows when it began to get krufty. I need to remember this. YMMV.

    sometimes things happen that should never happen... for giggles if you have time create a partition on the 840 on another PC and leave 150mb free.. then format the main partition and then manually mark it as active. then see if you can install windows... the other thing the Bios might not be letting the 840 have a boot partition... I saw this on a really old LGA775 board.. I had a SATA drive that I couldn't boot from. I needed to keep an ATA drive installed as the boot disk.

    sounds like a revival...

    Ok so last night, I disconnected all drives (1 hdd, 1 dvd, 1 corsair ssd) and left 840pro connected to port1 and windows partitioned the drive and formatted and installed. So I moved the 840pro back to port0 expecting it to fail and guess what it installs. So then I plugged the DVD port5 and the hdd port2 and 840pro on port0 and windows installed again. So I putt everything back dvd port5 hdd port2 corsair port1 840pro port0 and windows installed again.

    I dont know why its all working now, I did not clear cmos or anything before doing so. So now I have win7 and win8 installed on 840pro as dual boot with no issues.

    So as of now I consider it resolved but dont know how or why.

    Sometimes simplifying the playing field will let a motherboard figure out what's going on.

    Ace I'm glad you got it going.

    I don't know what the fix is, but like I say originally I went through days of hell trying to install Windows to a Samsung 830 on an Intel port. Eventually I got it installed but the SSD drives would keep "disappearing". It was only after moving the 830 to a Marvell port that the installation and normal use went fine. After that I tried moving the SSD's back to the Intel ports and that failed shortly.
    In the end I could not keep anything working if the OS SSD was not plugged into a Marvell port.
    The read/write times on the SSD's including a new 840 never were very good.....

    I honestly don't know what else I could have done....I tried using DISKPART to clean and make new partition.....I tried with no partition....I used Linux utilities to erase the SSD's....basically every way you can erase/partition/install Windows I tried and nothing would take until I moved the drives off the basic SATA ports.

    I had the same issues with an OCZ Vertex 2, difficult install, drive kept disappearing in the BIOS periferals SATA overview. After deleting all partitions, Windows 7 installer would generate 1, 2 or 3 partitions. In all cases the OS would fail at a startup because the system did not recognize the drive,

    My new Samsung 840 PRO worked fine when connected right out of the box.

    Problem seems to be in the Intel controller. Had more HD's that where not recognized.
