You can't do a fresh install of Windows onto the SSD? Are you trying to install Windows 7, Vista or XP?

If you see it in your BIOS and Device Manager it is there...

You first boot from the CD/DVD to install Windows 7... You will see the option to install the OS on the SSD... You install the OS and once it is installed, you should be able to tell it to boot from the SSD in your BIOS.

Try the CLEAN command? If that doesn't work, then I'd double-check the SSD connection, and unattach all other drives.

From the command prompt at boot.
