Okay. First, do you have a backup and a second computer to use? If so... then we are go to do some stuff that might be dangerous otherwise.
First, simple everything down. Take out your GPUs and run integrated. (Just to eliminate problems). If you are installing to your SSD, go ahead and unplug the HDD. Some of this might be needed, but for me it just eliminate variables.
2. Load defaults on your motherboard to undo anything that might have caused some problems, like overclocking. If you plan on using RAID, maybe change that setting now.
3. Flash your motherboard to the latest version. If you already are on teh latest version, reflash.
4. If you already have a way to install windows (USB drive), then boot from that. Inside the windows installer, delete every partition on your SSD. Everything. Then make a new partition. Windows will create a second very small partition, and this is to be expected. Go ahead and install.
5. See if your bios gets reset or anything. If nothing bad happens, then maybe your problems are over.
