Yes. If it is a clean install and you have nothing to lose on the drive then delete the partition and then reboot/restart. Then create a new partition. Format that. Install windows.
All done through advanced options in the windows install screen after the DVD loads up.
Make sure your in ACHI mode. That is good.
Did you perhaps format the drive or try installing in IDE and then switch to ACHI ? This is a brand new bare SSD drive ??
What model and brand ? What other hardware do you have ? Do you have any USB or HDD's hooked up ? Or anything in USB slots?
