Windows 7: Setup was unable to create a new system partition....

I'm not sure why the drive won't come up. I'm wondering if maybe I have the card installed in the wrong M2 slot? It's currently in the M2.2 so it's in the open space on my MB, should I move it to the M2.1 slot instead? I still have my sights on getting this OS installed properly, I just don't understand why it's giving me such a damned headache...

(EDIT)
Thinking about it, I forgot to mention that NO drives are detected, it pulls up the driver install after clicking "Install Now".
I would use the M.2_1 slot (the one closest to the CPU). It's both PCIE and SATA capable.

Well that went extremely well in comparison to what I was trying to do to get Win7 installed. I really hated giving in, but in the end my computer is 100% now and running well. I really wish I could have figured out wtf... and maybe, since my comp is running good, I'll try to do Win7 again... who knows.

Thanks to everyone who attempted to assist me with this issue.

As you have the new computer running well, why dont you try to create the Win 7 installation with the added drives on it.
Try fist the Asus APP.
