    Problems with new install on Crucial 128gig SSD
    I've tried several times to install Snow Leopard on my Crucial 128g SSD. I 'erase' my SSD using Mac 'journaled' , boot, start install, gets to point it starts coping software.... gives 'install failed' error...

    Please help if you can...



    edit: I assume this is a hardware problem... that is why I posted here.

    I previously used this CD to install Snow Lpd on the 250 gig hard drive (oem) does this make a difference?

    Using to install on another hard drive has no effect...
    Before erasing (formatting MacOS extended, journaled), you need to partition the drive with GUID scheme.
    Does that help?

    Update:
    1. Partitioned the disc using Druid Format (1 big partition)
    2. Formatted the Disc using Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
    3. Zeroed the disc

    Installation got to about 60% ..... then failed....

    I read some where.... to zero the disc several times, so I'll try that next.
