Ok so I installed windows and after I noticed that while I flashed the bios the CMOS cleared and set the SATA controller mode to IDE, so I switched it back to ACHI, and started from the windows disc to re install again since I had just done it anyways lol. I formatted the ssd and went to install windows, and it came up with an error that said it couldn't install, to restart and try again. So I restarted and now the ssd doesn't come up, and in its place where it was SATA 0, my steam game drive is now SATA 0. what gives on this? I have no bootable options right now to go in and see. Worse comes to worse, I have a vertex 2 that ill try to install on and then see if I can use disk management thing in windows to format it again. any suggestions would be great, i was really looking forward to playing Rift tonight after having my computer torn down for four days now

EDIT BIOS sees the vertex 3 ssd, even though windows installer does not.

DOUBLE EDIT ALL THE WAY: Booted back into win installer with sata set to IDE, delete the partitions, booted back into win installer, and voila! disk still shows up as disk 3, where as before it showed up as disk 0, which matched the sata port 0 it was physically in as well. Well lets hope the install goes through but I think it should. YAY RIFTING TONIGHT
