    I have delete the SSD and HD of S7 to install a clean Win7. Unfortunatelly, the SSD cannot work anymore. I have tried many methods to fix this problem. The following maybe the most possible way!
    1. goto the expresscache setup folder -- C:\Program Files\Diskeeper Corporation\ExpressCache.
    2. use the dos CMD to run the ECCmd.
    3. we can see that the ECCMD has many orders, including PARTITON, FORMAT.
    4. when I try to run any orders of ECCmd, it reports the following error: HFS Volume is not mounted.
    5. So I format the SSD disk to HFS+ format, because the HFS format cannot support a disk bigger than 2G.
    but after this, the ECCmd still reports the same error.
    I believe that the ECCmd can fix this issue, only if we can find a proper format for SSD disk.

    Dont try to format it mannually. Go to CMD prompt (you can even do this with recovery tools of the Win 7 cd) and write these:
    - DISKPART
    - LIST DISK (check which one is your iSSD, probably disk 0)
    - SELECT DISK 0 (if iSSD is 0, if not, then it must be disk 1) YOU HAVE TO BE EXTREMELY CAREFULL WITH THESE COMMANDS, YOU HAVE TO BE SURE WHICH IS ISSD (CHECK IN SIZE PARAMETERS). YOU MAY ACCIDENTELY ERASE HDD IF WRONG DISK IS SELECTED.
    - CLEAN
    - CONVERT MBR (if you're going to use EXPRESS CACHE IN WINDOWS 7) or CONVERT GPT (IF YOU'RE USING WINDOWS 8) - even if you want to install windows 8, I would convert to MBR and see if it installs express chache. GPT will be converted automaticaly if you install RAPID START version 2.0

    at this point, you can try to install EXPRESS CACHE.

    - if it doesn't work, then:

    - CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
    - SET ID=AF (this only aplies if you've selected MBR, in CONVERT TO MBR; if you've selected GPT its not this command, have to search a bit more)

    And that's it, you have your iSSD formated correctly. Both express cache and IRST drivers format the iSSD in HFS, so you don't have to worry about that.

    I get that error when I run command CONVERT GPT (Use Windows 8).
    So, How about the solution for this, sir ?

    Thanks.

    The "CLEAN" command worked fine? No problem?
    Then try CONVERT MBR. If it works, then:
    - CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
    - SET ID=AF

    When you install (if you install) rapid start, windows will change it to GPT if it needs, so don't worry about GPT.

    If the "CONVERT MBR" also doesn't work, go to "disk management" (you can go there selecting "RUN" and write diskmgmt.msc

    Then, the iSSD drive should be there. Right click on the DISK #, and see if it has a "convert mbr/gpt command", or "initialize" command. Try them, and then creat a volume. If even that don't work, I guess then you may have an malfunctioning iSSD. Better return it for repair...
    From what I've read, I think some of these iSSD's units were defective. It my be your case...
