Can you see the drives in BIOS?
Using IDE Sata type is not suggested for SSDs, you should be able to install when in IDE mode. AHCI is used for SSDs beceuse it allows for better performance.
You should change the Sata type to AHCI from BIOS before starting. If this persists you may have to load a driver for the Sata controller during the install.
I have an OCZ Agility 3 90GB as a system disk, but when I installed I used a cloning software to transfer my existing OS.
