I've recently bought a OCZ Onyx Series SATA II 2.5" Solid State Drive. I also bought a Kingston 7GB pendrive and made it into a bootable Windows device. When I look int the BIOS it shows that I've got a SSD attached to my computer, but when I boot up the pendrive and Windows asks where to install to it doesn't display my SSD drive. I've plugged in into the white SATA 2.0 on my motherboard and I don't know what else to do... please help!

what version of windows? –  Journeyman Geek Sep 6 '13 at 0:34
    
I'm installing Windows 7. –  Cubies Sep 6 '13 at 0:37
    
That would rule out incompatibility with that version of sata. Double check if the disk actually works with a linux livecd? –  Journeyman Geek Sep 6 '13 at 1:22
    
I don't have a linux livecd. –  Cubies Sep 6 '13 at 1:28
    
or a liveusb. hmm, or at the very least check if its detected in the bios –  Journeyman Geek Sep 6 '13 at 1:31
