    Does Mushkin have a Secure Eraze Utility ? it would be faster and Better for the SSD if so.

    I'd be trying to RMA the SSD too then , if it won't take Windows....

    Is SSD on latest Firmware? ...edit don't see a firmware for Eco3 actually or a Secure Erase Utility

    Hi tnchi986 , you should really start your own new Thread and Explain some more what you are trying to do , I am not sure what you mean when you say

    "Do you thinks Windows 10 vs Windows 7?"

    sorry about that.

    If you do a Secure Erase , you don't need to do the Clean on Boot , as you were doing , you should just be able to use the Next or New Button in Win10 Setup.

    If it fails and you try again you will need the Clean instructions but 1st make sure you are cleaning the SSD and not the USB by accident by listing the Disks and then using the number given for the SSD . Perhaps your system sees the USB Key as Disk 0 instead of the 1st (only?) SSD connected and you Wiped the USB ?. It would explain why you have to make a new USB Boot key every time you tried this......

    eg:

    Boot up Windows Installation USB

    On the first screen. Hold down SHIFT + F10. A command Windows will pop up. Type:

    diskpart
    list disk (get SSD # it maybe 1 not 0 ?)
    select disk X (where X=SSD# from above)
    clean
    exit
    exit
    Continue with the installation.


    more info here , just stop at step 7 for you and exit.

    You have tried installing Windows 10 on a SSD and on a HDD and both fail? You even tried with different motherboards? Have you tried a new sata cable?

    Edit: have you tested your memory?

    Hey Kbird this is my first attempt of the day today. I used the Low format tool you set to me yesterday. I received the error code "we couldnt create a new partition. Error 0x80004005" when i did this.

    Looking into the post now about mushkin parted magic you sent.

    I orderd two HD one SSD and one HDD. Both refuse to install Windows. I have tried working drives from my pc that have windows on them in my pc and when cleaned and attemptes are made to nistall windows to them on her pc it fails. I have tried 15 different sata cables, all of which i have confirmed to be working on my pc. I have tried 4 different motherboards after RMAing through Newegg. No luck.

    Edit: I have tried all four sticks, sets of two sticks, mix and match two sticks, and all four sticks as single sticks. All slots and everything...
