When installing Windows you should first have removed the drive that's not required for the installation.

Remove or disconnect that drive, leaving only the SSD in place.
Boot from the Win7 DVD.
Format existing Windows partition using Windows Setup.
Do a fresh install on that same partition.

When Windows has successfully installed, you can then put the other drive back and format it in Windows.
