SSD isn't showing up on install of W7 nor diskpart but is in bios
I'm at my wits end with a new ssd. It's seen in bios. When I go to install windows no drive is seen. I'm using a USB stick to install. I've tried raid IDE and achi. It happens when I tried and old vista disk too. Please help!

Check in your bios boot order that your optical drive and SSD are not listed as a UEFI devices (like UEFI xxxx Optical), change it to just the optical drive.
Also, some folks find that disabling EFI works on some boards to get the install done.
sounds like you will need to hit "F6" at startup and provide the SATA Controler's driver from your motherboards manufactuer website.
