    Install Windows 7 on Intel SDD connected to PCIeMiniCard (Intel MB also).


      Hi all,


      I´m getting crazy!! I´ve tried everything without success and have being searching on the web for a solution without success.


      Last weekk I bought an Intel Board (Intel® Desktop Board DH87RL) and Intel SSD (Intel® Solid-State Drive 525 Series). I plugged everything, started computer and great! It works! BIOS recognizes the mSATA SSD and I was happy . Next step was to install Windows7 from a USB stick. Everything works fine, it boots from USB, starts Windows and when I select the drive to install Windows on it I see the following:


      "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu".

      I´ve tried to format it, to create a volume, to give attributes... but nothing works. Windows7 installation thinks that the SSD is not a boot disk and can not install windows on it. What I´m doing wrong? Is my hardware compatible with this? Do I need to add some drivers to the installation?

      Many thanks in advance!
