    Been working on getting this to work but no luck. I swapped out my 8gb ssd for a toshiba 80gb ipod hard drive.My problem is that the bios detects the hard drive but when trying to install win 7, I get an error. Windows tells me i am unable to install. "windows cannot be installed to this disk. The computers hardware may not support booting to this disk.Ensure that the disks controller is enabled in the computers bios menu.". I have checked the bios and there is no option to enable anything. I have tried using diskpart but same story. Any body have any suggestion. I have been searching and reading alot of things but no luck. I have also tried to install XP and a few other things but no luck.

    You may have to parttion and format the drive before an operating system will install.
