W520 Woes (SSD, R & R)

Having trouble installing a Crucial W520 SSD in my newly purchased W520.

 

I created recovery disks prior to replacing the drive. When I use the recovery disks to re-image the new SSD drive I receive the following message during "Processing cdrivebackup.swm":

 

iuimagex: "Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source."

 

I have tried multiple times to no avail. Have tried in all SATA BIOS modes, etc.

 

Model: 4270 (W520)

SSD: CT128M4SSD2 (Crucial M4 128GB)

BIOS: 1.25

Platform: Windows 7 X64

 

Thanks in advance for any help!

 

James

What happens when you try to install Windows 7 from a Windows 7 install DVD?

Re: W520 Woes (SSD, R & R)

Unfortunately I don't have one of those lying around - wish I did - it stinks not to get the official retail box style disk, instead its all wrapped up in Lenovo's stuff. Any suggestions?
