Make sure your sata port which the ssd is connected to is set to AHCI

I'm still in BIOS completely stuck, should I just continue in IDE mode? Will I be able to change it to ahci with no problems once windows is up?

If I enable ahci under the raid mode (only place for the option) my ssd and my cd drive disappear. What should I do?

You might need AHCI drivers for your computer. Also, check to see which ports the drives are plugged into. Make sure your SSD is on one of the AHCI ports. You should probably plug everything else (HDD, optical drives, eSATA ports) into regular SATA ports, not AHCI/RAID ones. There's no need for them to be plugged into those.
