You need to go into disk managment and initialize the drive, set the paortition , format and give it a drive letter.

Right click on computer and select manage , then select disk management and when you get to disk management you will see a drive with unalocated space , so you need to right clikc on that drive and create a new volums and forllow the screen prompts.
Before you load the operating system on the SSD you need to change the sata mode from IDE to AHCI in the bios.
