Disk read error on start up after writing image to SSD on G75VX

First made copies on DVD using updated AI Recovery.
Made copy of windows image on external HDD.
Open laptop pulled original drive and replaced with Crucial M4 256GB.
Booted to DVD drive and installed Windows.
After complete and computer restarted it gives "A disk read error occurred".
I'm at a loss as I followed the steps for a clean install. I also checked the bios and ACHI was already selected. UECI is enabled by default and I tried turning that off and still same error. I also tried using bios to boot and no go.
The computer is new out the box today and would like to get it going with the SSD as the performace gains are very nice. Any help is appreciated and let me know if you require more information.
Thanks

hi, is your CD-ROM using when you play music or movie? what is your OS verion, Win7 or Win 8?
if you use 3th party utility is it able to burn DVD or CD-ROM.

The DVD drive does work as it wrote the disk image onto the DVD's. It also loads files from the DVD drive to restore image to SSD.

Running Windows 7 64 bit.

Currently machine doesn't boot only gives error message and press crtl+alt+del to restart

The bios does see the Crucial M-4 in P0

Bios version is 207

I'll tell you what worked for me.


1. update to BIOS 210 (the BIOS I'm using)
2. Go back in BIOS to see if you SSD is there now
3. Go to last tab and click on "restore defaults", then click on "save".
4. Put the first DVD of the "AI Recovery DVDs" in the ODD
4.1. Go back in BIOS to last tab and click on "launch EFI", and recover to the SSD (worked great for me)
5. Follow the AI Recovery Disc instructions.

PS: Hope this works for you, it did for me.
Just uninstalled the "Bloatware" that's not needed after the "recovery".

To note after writing the image and computer restarted it would not boot. So windows has not completed installing.

Flashing bios 210 now. Crossing my fingers this works as I have to leave for work in a couple hours and internet is not so good there to work on this machine.

But to no avail. The read still wouldn't read. I know the drive works as I had it in another machine running vista.

Note* bios 210 turned off back lighting of keyboard but only after windows starts up and bluetooth shows on start up not discoverable.

Oh, you need to hit the "fn+f4 for to turn on keyboard lights.
IDK about the Bluetooth
