SSD not visible

Hello.

I have some problems with my SSD. My computer recently f**cked up and wouldn't let me boot up my computer from the SSD and it was not visible in BIOS either. I remember I had some problems first time I wanted to install windows 7 on it, because it wasn't visible but somehow I got it fixed and I could install windows on it. (Don't really know what I did though.)

Well now I'm trying to install windows 7 on the SSD again, but when I have to choose the drive where I want to install windows 7 - the SSD isn't visible and it is not visible in the BIOS either.

I'm not sure if I have attached the cables to the right place. I have 4 sata cables incl. the dvd-drive, SSD and my HDD cables.

This is what I'm talking about: http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/8151/sataetc.png

Here is my setup spec:
i5-2500K
Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz 4GB CL7 (2x2 GB)
Noctua NH-U12P SE2
Sony Optiarc DVD±RW burner AD-7260S
ASUS P8P67 PRO
HAF 922
MSI GeForce GTX 580
Corsair TX 950W PSU
Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB

Best regards
Patrick
