    Cant install windows on new ssd, error 0x80300024


    Hi, Im new in this forum, so sorry for my bad english
    I have a problem which is killing me... today I bought new Transcend SSD370 256GB hard drive. I write windows 8 to bootable usb drive. When I launched setup, choosed custom installation, then it shows just one drive with unallocated space almost 256gb, when I try to push button next for instalation I get error "we couldnt install windows in the location you choose. please check your media drive. 0x80300024 ." then I tried to creat new partition but got error " we couldnt create partition". I tried google fix for this, I tried use cmd and diskpart comands to do clean on disk 0 , but got error " diskpart has encoutered an error: the request could not be performed because of an i/o device error". intresting thing that I put this SSD to other laptop (asus) and after 5minutes windows was fresh installed... and then when I put SSD with windows that was installed on other laptop I got error that disk is unreadable or some disk error and suggestion to do ctrl alt del for reboot... both laptops ar on ACHI and UEFI is disabled... I dont know what to do next.... Im so depressed... any ideas how to install windows?

    today I tried install from DVD, I hoped maybe USB flash drive is conflicting with SSD or somethink, but still get error that couldnt install in he location I choised, and gave me error 0x8007045D :/ I thinking maybe its something wrong with my HDD cable to laptop motherboard, but if it would be damaged I think I would not able to boot my previous windows from HDD.... I dont know it is so depressing...

    I tried use migration program like AOMEI to migrate OS to SSD, I think program copied everythink ok but when I try boot from SSD I still get error read disk error occured.... I think it is or laptop bios fault or SSD firmware does not support my laptop or even SSD not support my laptop

    Some of these "Generic" as i call them SSD drives dont work well with some sata controllers. The same can be said about some of the older non intel sata controllers and newer standard style hard drives. Put it into another computer and see if there is a firmware update you can install than try it in the above computer again. May be all you need to do.

    Was it a newegg special? If it was than you know you got the short end of the stick as they are famous for selling defective, missing parts, etc on shell shocker or daily specials.

    Personally id send it back and get atleast a samsung 840evo. There software is so much better and firmware updates are very easy.
