Cannot boot windows install cd and ssd sizing. T430

2012-11-29, 3:43 AM



i have been trying to instal windows 7 over windows 8 and the windows cd doesn't allow me to do so. 



I have disabled secure boot. I ould reach windows starting and the whole process would just halt. 

And if i try to install a windows 8. The t430 would not even boot up the usb installation media just keep 

repeating the boot menu whenever i choose the usb.


Please help i really wanna replace the stock slow hdd. .  



Also i have bought a 7MM strontium ssd  to replace the stock hdd. And to my horror , I had to use

a considerable amount of force to push the ssd in. . Would this expand or even crack the housing
