    Intel SSD 530 Series works fine but can't install windows on it


      I've just purchased Intel SSD 530 (120Gb).  Like the title says, I can't install windows 7/8 on this SSD. I have tried to install it in both IDE and AHCI.

      Windows installation just won't see my drive. I have tried on 2 mobos, a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 and a AsRock 970 Extreme3. Both mobos have the latest firmware, the ssd has the latest firmware. Also I have another 2 SSDs that work just fine. I can see the SSD in BIOS, but not in the windows installation.


      I can see the SSD in windows, I can copy files on it. It shows that everything is fine in SMART.

      I'm not a PC beginner. I like to belive that I'm a pro when it comes to PCs so please don't treat me like a kid .error failure firmware
