A single HDD isn't recommended for HD editing, although it often works, but you don't want to try editing 3D with a single HDD, even a fast one. I recommend you put the spare SSD in your system for 3D editing. In any case, that shouldn't be the reason you're having issues with a simple install.
Again, Grass Valley should be able to help you get through the install. You could also register on the GV Forum. List your system configuration and other Edius users also might have suggestions. It could be a Windows 8 issue, but AFAIK
Edius is Windows 8 compatible.
