I purchased a new laptop (Lenovo Z710). It came with a hard drive and Windows 8 installed.
I replaced the drive with a new 256 GB SSD, and I have a Windows 8 USB bootable stick, but when I do an installation, I get a missing driver error (I will attach a screen shot).
The new SSD is seen by the BIOS.
The new SSD is also seen by Windows 7 installation. In fact, I installed Windows 7 first, but then decided to install Windows 8.
I did a few troubleshooting steps, including formatting, initializing, cleaning via diskpart, creating a partition (and setting the partition as active), but Windows 8 installer still doesn't seem the SSD!
