I managed to successfully install my 128gb mydigital discount ssd into the slate . I am now trying to reinstall the OS from the recovery disk.However, it is stuck at the 0% stage of 'copying windows files' stage. It has been over 25 minutes. Is this normal? How long should it take to reinstall the OS ? I am doing this thru the slate usb port. The BIOS does show the ssd when I choose boot options . Update: I abandoned the installation and am now running the hard disk test via the BIOS. HD test successful. Trying to install windows again.....! Thanks.
