Win7 install cant find ssd

Im trying to reinstall windows 7 and then install windows 10.

I thought i could get everything ready by formatting the ssd that i wanted to use for the win7 install.

But neither bios or the windows install and diskpart cant see the ssd so i cant do anything.

How are you connecting to the ssd ?
Seems power or data cable is messed up if nothing is sensing it ?

Same as this problem: asus rampage 4 extreme - error code 14
I reseated the sata cable and I turned off the psu for about a minute and then turned it back on and both the bios and the install could see the ssd. It was motherboard led code 14. Asus rampage IV extreme.
