set your raid as AHCI - once i had everything stable with my ssd.
1.Open Computer Management by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, clicking Administrative Tools, and then double-clicking Computer Management. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
2.In the Navigation pane, under Storage, click Disk Management.
from there you can format your drive and do the rest. it took like 2 minutes. i hope this helps. im on my work pc currently and had to kind of go off memory.
