What type of SSD is it?  M.2 right, you're the guy with 30 degrees?

 

If so, then it may be turning off some SATA ports.  Check your manual.

Try running disk management and seeing if the disks appear there. They may need to be initialised. In the past that's been the issue for me at least. Microsoft guide on initialising disks

ok checked manual, it says that ports 5 & 6 (of 6 ports) are disabled when m.2 installed, but the hdd's are on ports 1 & 2.

If a drive does not appear in the disk management in many cases, it is because it was not enabled in the BIOS, so go to the BIOS settings and check if the unit is displayed there, and if it does not appear even in BIOS I have very bad news for you.

I've managed to get the disks to appear in the BIOS and Computer / Device Manager, however after initializing both discs I still don't see the hdd's appear when i go to "This PC" (Win10 64-bit).

Well, at least it's something, some motherboards require you to enable the port or slot where the hard drive is connected. I'm not talking about the boot order, some motherboards have an additional menu in which you can see that the hard disk is shown because the motherboard recognizes it but you must change the status to "enabled".

 

Once you have made sure the status is enabled, go to Disk Management and right click on the drive, then choose to initialize:

You will be asked to format the unit and choose a partition table; choose GPT because it is the current standard that everyone uses, the MBR is also fine so do not worry if you choose it by mistake.
