Post SOLVED Windows 8 not installing on SSD

I restarted the PC a few times and prayed then it worked :D

OLD ISSUE DESCRIPTION:
HI guys, so I have built a computer for a family member and have an Intel 330 series 60GB SSD for the boot drive. In addition I have two 1TB Seagate Barracudas in RAID 1 for the storage drive. I had windows 8 working on the SSD before I changed the motherboard to support RAID. Windows 8 booted fine and was working on the new motherboard installed to the SSD. However when I got the RAID array to work windows 8 would not boot. REMINDER: The SSD is NOT part of the Array AND windows 8 was working perfectly beforehand. In addition, I formatted the SSD to reinstall Windows 8 and now it say that I cannot install windows 8 to the drive. It says: "The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, Windows can only be installed to GPT disks."
why is windows 8 suddenly not working on the SSD even though it was fine before?
If you know something that could help please let me know! PLEEEEAASE!!!
