Installing Vista on a SSD

I'm looking for help in installing Vista Ultimate SP1 x64 on to a SSD.

The motherboard bios does see the drive, but the Vista installer does not see the drive at all. I've tried IDE/ AHCI, and Raid but nothing shows on the installer.

Is it true that Vista can not do a direct install? What steps will I need to take to install Vista on to the SSD?

Gigabyte P55A-UD3

SSD: Patriot M28 256gb (Samsung Controller)

I also tried installing with Win7 Ultimate and like Vista does not see the SSD.
