I have just installed a new Sandisk Extreme 120gb ssd and have formatted it in NTFS and it has around 111gb free. When I
boot the windows cd to install on the drive it comes up fine but when I select the ssd as the destination folder it says "there is not enough space on this partition" when there clearly is. Help me please.

Delete the partition on the SSD an try again. There is simply no space left for the bootloader partition. There is o need to partition or format the SSD before installing windows.
