    Clean Win 8 install on SSD

    I know this has been talked about far too much but despite following every tutorial or guide I can find, I can't get Windows 8 installed.

    I have a new intel build with a brand new kingston hyperx SSD. I get through to selecting a drive to install Windows and have tried
    1. Using the single unallocated drive
    2. Creating new partition unformatted (this creates 2 partitions for me. A system and a primary)
    3. Formatting the new primary partition (which always fails)

    With option 1 it remains at 0% files copied on next screen and goes to "could not format partition... error code 0x80070057"

    Option 2 AND 3 yield the same error

    When attempting to clean the disk through cmd prompt using "Clean" in Diskpart, I receive a "redundancy cyclic error"

    Asus P77V LX
    Intel 3570k
    Kingston HyperX 120GB
    Kingston HyperX 2x8GB 1600MHz

    Windows 8 System Builder DVD

    NOTE: Any and all assistance is appreciated.
    I have previously been running windows 8 dev edition on a 32 bit drive but need to upgrade.
