I take it the ssd is installed. make sure its a a boot sata/ide cable.
take out ssd (or just disconnect) and have the vista disk in boot off that and format in their. then reinstall ssd and have 1tb too. boot into windows off ssd and should work.

Vista has some issues with SSD'S the least of which is support TRIM. It should work though, but it may need the ACHI drivers for you chipset loaded before install.
