New SSD freezes system
I'm Trying to install an Opti-bay (PATA-SATA) + SSD (Samsung 840 256Gb or an OWC SATA II 120Gb), taking the place of unused superdrive, then install Mountain Lion.
The result is that the iMac recognizes and format the SSD but can't finish the ML installation: near the end of installation (2minutes to go) it says installation failed. It creates the recovery partition, which i can use with disk utility or recover a TM (that does non boot).
Starting from the original HDD I can see the SSD, copy files and folders into it, but every 20-30" it stops for a while, freezing the entire system, then restart. This thing happens also white copying files, it goes at great speed, then slows down, then goes at great speed again, and so on...
I also tryied with a new optibay: same result...
Help me, I'm going crazy (and poor also... :P)

Is this a good question?
