If that drive is set as 1st disk (Disk 0 ) in the BIOS / SATA port, then no matter which drive you install windows on, it will always use disk 0 for the MBR

No, My primary drive is on the 1st SATA port and always has been, there is no way to configure the drive in the bios other than choosing which device boots first which was my Blu-Ray drive then my primary HDD.

I would physically unplug it from the board and see if you can boot
If you can. just use disk management to delete the partition and format the drive

I can't use disk management to format the drive, when I attempt to do this it says "Windows cannot format the system partition on this disk"

"You have to delete the partition before formatting"
what?? You format a partition, you can not format a non partitioned disk.
Now he may will delete the partition, and then just create a new one and then format that. But your wording is odd if that was what you meant to say.
Follow greywolf instructions and you should be good.
