My Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit Can't see my SSD ?

Ok here's the thing am trying to install Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit but where I come to "Where do you want to install Windows?" the Box is empty but my SSD is connected and shows on the post screen under pysical disk am trying to install it as Disk 0 which is Sata 3 port 1 ( My SSD is Sata 3 Crucial C300 128gb )

But here's the problem when I use the same Sata 3 port 1 for a 2TB Hard drive I see it in the Windows box ? to be honest this Sata 3 port 1 was originally used 1st time for the 2TB Hard drive and i even formatted it could this be the problem do I need to erase it even though notthings on it maybe the Sata 3 port 1 needs a wipe out
I just want my SSD which is gonna have the operating system to show up as Disk 0 which obviously is Sata 3 port 1
Sata 3 port 2 becomes Disk 1
While my SSD does show up on Sata 3 Port 2 in the Windows Box but it shows as Disk 1

    I really can't see that wiping the disk clean will work around this. Do the BIOS settings not help in any way? Have you tried popping all other disks out and leaving W7 only with a choice of one? Is there a SATA port 0?
