I have been trying for two days to install a brand new fresh copy of Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit over my little handy tablet:
The installation goes fine, but the first boot... never ends! After a while of boot process It always ends up with a black screen and a mouse pointer stuck in the middle and I can't do anything from there, the computer is stuck there and it doesn't respond anymore to keyboard/mouse inputs.
I have also tried to boot in "safe mode" and "safe mode with networking" but results are pretty the same!
Black screen with "safe mode" signature top and bottom, with mouse pointer in the middle.... but everything is just stuck there and I have to turn off computer manually.
The hard drive installed inside this tablet is a micro SSD half-size (32GB), like this:
I have made some research in google for possible solutions, but I am not an expert into these matters and I don't know what to do exactly...
I have found this forum which seems well reliable in problem-solving regarding these matters... so I hope that someone can help me here...
Anyway, in another section i saw another user suggesting to download and execute "FRST scan tool".... so I did it, and here is my actual output scan output ran from the media installation DVD command prompt (restore):

do you have any suggestion on how to proceed from this point?
Looking at the log above.. there's something strange for me anyway.... is it normal that under the section

the internal sandisk SSD drive (32 gb) is not present in the list... ?!
Thanks in advance
