Asssuming that its the SSD:
- Update your BIOS:
- Make sure that you load the default profile in the BIOS before updating
- Update the BIOS using the Flash method or which ever method you feel comfortable with. Preferable not within windows environment cause you are having problems & we want the BIOS to be flashed properly. Hence, using a thumb drive is the best solution.
- Update the SSD's firmware using Intel's Tool Box
- Erase everything that is on the SSD using secure erase
- Disconnect other HDDs "if any"
- Start a fresh install of Win 7 64bit
- Make sure you have set your SATA port to AHCI before installing Win 7
- Your RAMS are in the proper DIMMS
- Do not connect any extra hardware that came bundled with your board such as the CIR\Bluetooth. As a matter of fact you can disable that thing in the BIOS after the BIOS update.
- Use the old BIOS interface not the visual BIOS "if possible"
I understand your frustration but we'll solve it together. It's a very nice board & you should have everything working like bliss.
