omg that is so hard to read when you don't use a period to separate different ideas into sentences so try to make it easier on people trying to help you know what I mean its just more effort on the readers part just a suggestion thanks.
Anyways, are you saying you didn't install the OS on it? How did the OS get onto it? If it's recognized in the BIOS, you should be able to boot from an install CD and then set it up (partition/format) then install. You can't just copy the OS from another disk drive, it needs to be installed.
What mode do you have it set up in BIOS (IDE or AHCI)?
The problem is when i run the vesta setup disk to insall windows,and ssd is set to first drive to boot there is a choice of where to install new os.
The window is blank where ssd should be, and a message NO HARD DRIVE.
So i boot from my standard hdd , when windows has loaded it see's the ssd , and i can read and write to it
