Got all my parts last night for Sandy Goodness. Finished building it last night, was too tired to progress any further.
Today, I began with installing Windows 7.

I read through the manual (both manuals, one for Intel's Smart Response and the other for creating RAID arrays). My board has four SATA III ports (all of my drives are SATA III, for the record) - two of these ports are Intel ones and the other two are NOT Intel... I'd assume jMicron?
Based on what I read in the Smart Response manual, I plugged the SSD and the CD drive into the Intel ports (left the Blacks out) and installed Windows to the SSD (in a mode called XHD, I believe). Then I powered down the rig, installed my hard drives, and turned on RAID mode for the gsata ports (non-Intel ones). I setup my RAID 0 array using the two blacks and rebooted.

My SSD is being seen, but when I get to the part where it begins booting the OS, it gives me an error (something like OS not found or to that effect). It tells me to insert the install disc and hit enter. I do, and it just repeats itself.

I'm really confused as to what to do here. Is there something I'm missing?
Any help appreciated. Feel free to ask for more information if you need it.

Is the OS already installed on your SSD? There is still that stupid problem with the S2281 controller and it not being recognized when you try boot the computer...especially on p67/z68 based chipsets.
