W7 cant find SSD for install but bios can

Ok so I have 2 Hard drives on my notebook one HDD and a SSD. I have W7 installed on the HDD and can boot to it. Ive been able to access the SSD and move files to it from W7 installed on the HDD.

When I try to install W7 on the SSD Windows cant seem to find the SSD.

The SSD is Intels X25-M SATA 80GB. Any clues on what I can do?

Do you have a disk with the drivers for the SSD on it? If so you can load them during install. on the bit where it asks you to select the disk click "Load Drivers" and put the disk in

Do you have your SSD plug in Sata 1 or Sata 2?

Intel supplied a disk with a manual on it, no drivers. I tried downloading drivers from Intels website and loading them for the install but that hasnt worked.


Honestly I dont know if its SATA 1 or 2

Put the HDD to one side, & install Win 7 to SSD.
