I believe you need to change the boot order of your drives in the BIOS (correct me if I'm wrong, anyone). The computer is attempting to boot from the HDD, which no longer contains an operating system. You need to tell it to boot from the SSD.

Set the Drive to AHCI mode in BIOS, and make it your first boot drive or your first priority.

Is this being installed on a PC or laptop? Any specifics about your system can be helpful. I agree with the above statements, as well.

That's probably because it's trying to boot from the nonexistent hard drive. Can you get into the BIOS options, or does it bluescreen even before the BIOS screen?

Oh, you did this with a clean install?
What are your BIOS settings with regards to the boot drive?
You may have to format the SSD first.
