Make sure the SSD is the only drive installed when you install Windows . Update the Windows and install Drivers. Shut the computer install the second hard drive and turn the PC back on .

And do you think the SSD should be set up for RAID or AHCI?

RAID is if you have more then 2 drives . It should be setup in the bios as ACHI

You never want to setup a raid with an SSD and a mechanical hard drive .

Info :

RAID 0 : is with 2 drives meant for speed but if one drive goes bad you loose everything there is no tolerance

RAID 1 : is with 2 drives also known as mirrored . If one drive goes bad replace the bad drive and the raid will fix itself and you won't loose your files . Raid 1 is not meant for speed cause it rights two both drives . So both drives have the something . Meant for tolerance .
