    Z87 chipset i/o issues?

    Aikistan

      Hi, I have a new Z87 motherboard (ASUS Maximus VI Extreme) that POSTs fine, sees all drives, RAM, etc., but I cannot install Windows 7 Pro 64-bit on the SSD I'm using (Samsung 840 Pro) without it giving the infamous 0x8007045D error.  Are there any known issues with Intel Z87 and Samsung drives/SATA3?

       

      Thank you in advance!

          Thanks for joining the community.

          I understand you have issues installing the operating system on your computer.

          I have been able to install Windows on a demo computer with Z87 chipset under AHCI and RAID mode. I just made sure Windows7 had SP1 included using thumb drive.

           

          Please choose proper SATA mode settings at BIOS level and try again.

           

          Allan.

            It turns out the shiny new SSD was just bad enough to not take a good install.  I had to wait until another one arrived to eliminate the disk, so I thought I'd rule out any known chipset conflicts.  Thank you for your reply, though.
