Are doing a RAID set up?

No. Just the stand alone 80gb SSD for now.

No luck unfortunately. I get this error when I try those drivers: "No new devices could be found. Make sure the driver files are correct and located on the driver installation media."

Try disabling your CD drive in your BIOS.

Do you have a working OS on another hard drive? If so, boot up to Windows, and run the setup.exe file found on the DVD.

If you don't have another OS, do you have another machine you can use? I suggest taking the SSD and sticking it in another machine. Remove all the other hard drives from that machine, to avoid causing boot loader problems.

Install to the SSD, then move the hard drive back to the other machine.

I do have another machine with win 7 installed. It's a 32bit though. Will I be able to install the 64 bit from within that installation?

I'll try diabling the drive in the BIOS, but I've also tried this with the drive completely removed and got the same error.

No, you will have to boot from the DVD or USB drive on the 32-bit machine, if you want to install the 64-bit Windows.

Results may vary. Even if you can get it installed, there is a chance it will not work in the other machine. Just cross your fingers.

My other machine isn't 64 bit, so I couldn't install win7 x64 on it
