        Found this:

        To fix this issue, you will need to boot from the Windows Vista DVD. Follow these steps:
        1. Boot from the Windows Vista DVD or the Windows Vista recovery disc that was supplied with your computer by inserting it into the drive then restarting. (Note: if your system does not automatically boot from the Vista disc when it is inserted, you need to change the boot device in BIOS. To do this, boot from the installation disc, insert the disc, then restart, and while the computer is restarting, continually press the appropriate key [F12 on most systems, F1, F2, F10, the Delete (del) key or the Escape (ESC) key on others -- consult your user's manual or perform a Google search for your specific model] then select CD/DVD/CD-RW as the boot drive.)
        2. Choose your language settings and hit “Next”
        3. Click “Repair Your Computer” at the bottom of the screen. This will launch Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE)
        4. Choose the installed OS to repair, and you will see a list of recovery tools.
        5. Open the command prompt
        6. Enter the following commands, pressing enter after each, to create a Manual System Restore (as discovered by Arun Kumar on the TechNet discussion boards):
          • cd windows\system32\config
          • ren default default.old
          • ren sam sam.old
          • ren security security.old
          • ren software software.old
          • ren system system.old
          • cd regback
          • copy default c:\windows\system32\config
          • copy sam c:\windows\system32\config
          • copy security c:\windows\system32\config
          • copy software c:\windows\system32\config
          • copy system c:\windows\system32\config


        7. Restart your computer, this time booting from the hard disk.If the problem recurs, repeat the process.
        My local hospital has a sign which reads "This way for accidents and emergencies." Haven't people in hospital got enough to worry about without looking for further misfortune?

                    Same idea I had but he cannot get to the, press any key to boot cd message to install windows, I agree with, just make sure you only have the SSD connected up, but make sure it is on Sata 0 or 1 slot, you may have to format and re-install.

                        Your HDD or SSD is solid red, only have the SSD connected and make sure it is on the 0/1 Sata on the board.

                            I don't think an awful lot of those SSDs to be honest. I had one which failed very quickly.

                              Sorted now then good luck.
                              Was going to suggest to just have the HDD conected this time and try again that would have ruled the SSD out.
