Set up your computer with only the SSD hooked up and install Windows, making sure to put your motherboard into AHCI mode and also selecting AHCI mode in the Windows set up. Once everything is done and you are in windows, you can set up your HDDs.

i setup my ssd with a configuration of two 1tb black`s in raid0, all i did was go into bios, set my controllers to ACHI\\RAID then i rebooted and pushed ctrl+f to setup my raid0, then i booted from windows7 cd, when i came to the screen were i choose harddrives to install win7 on it didnt find anything, then i just removed the win7 cd, put in my motherboard cd, found the appropriate drivers for ACHI\\RAID install, loaded them up so it could find my harddrives, selected ssd to install win7 on and the rest is history and im sitting here typing this to you.. (this is 2 days ago i did this on my gigabyte 890FX. Note, instead of removeing win7 cd you could just download the drivers from http://www.asrock.com/mb/download.as...xtreme4&o=Win7 (think this is for 32bit windows, if you have 64 you need another link) and put them into a usb memory stick or something and load them from there.
