How do I install Windows on Acer Nitro 5 with only SSD?

Hey, I can't seem to crack this. I bought an Acer Nitro 5 (AN515-54 || NH.Q5BEP.06E) with 512gb SSD only (no HDD), without OS installed. When I try to install Windows 7 from the USB flashdrive, it shows no discs at all, saying "we couldn't identify any drives".

The SDD is visible in BIOS on the 1st place as HDD0 (one of photos shows that). When I enter the cmd during Windows installation and use diskpart -> list disk, it shows only the USB itself, no other disks at all.

I'm running out of ideas and it's been 2 days already trying to hack this... how can I make this SDD visible for Windows installer? I'm attaching photos of BIOS settings so that you can take a look yourself. I'll appreciate any help.
