Wait, did you do a quick format?

Go into control panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer management
then click on Disk management, then look for your SSD and click on it once.

Right click on the Unpartitioned (bar with details on it but a black line over it) and select format, Make sure to click !!!!!Quick format!!!!! for Allocation Unit Size i think you put in 32 kilobytes (32KB)

EDIT: Sorry if this didn't help much, but sometimes people forget to do this, and the drive wont show up, it happened when i installed my 1TB drive :D

EDIT2: OOPS also forgot to give some help on the bios settings or whatever, but here i think i go!

Okay, Go into your BIOS and select the boot drive for permanent use (one with Windows) so you wont have to always hit F8, then you can boot up without always hitting F8.

Then when you manage to boot into windows, with SSD and everything connected, follow the instructions from my primary post (from top of post to the 32KB bytes thing)
Tell us how it all goes!
