Windows can see x64, but not as a boot drive

Whenever I try to install my X64 as the boot drive, I would get prompted during installation that Win7 cannot detect a drive on my computer. I know my x64 isn't broken, b/c whenever I use my regular HDD as the boot drive, installing the X64 as a secondary drive, Win7 sees it fine and I am able to store information on the x64.

Check inside your bios if your ssd is the first disk drive in the boot disk priority, if so then go to boot device priority and set your dvd-rw as your first boot device and second your SSD. Save changes and restart your machine. Normally your installation will begin and your ssd will be recognized.

If that doesn't work then check if you're installing in IDE or AHCI mode. Select the IDE mode, even though win 7 has all the necessary files in order to recognize your ssd in AHCI mode also. If you're experiencing problems with AHCI mode use a usb disk, load it with your AHCI drivers that are shipped with the mb cd and you're good to go.
