Windows 7: BSOD during video encode, reboot, now missing drive

BSOD during video encode, reboot, now missing drive

Windows 7. 20 GB RAM. Intel i5. Nvidia GTX 480.

I was doing a video encode with Handbrake and walked away to do things.

I came back to BSOD. Then I rebooted the system and my drive was missing. And as a result, my drive letters got rearranged.

It appears all my drives are there in the Device Manager.

I go to Disk Management and it shows this:

What should I do??? I don't want to format it! And how can Windows be booting? This is my brother's PC so I don't know exactly how it was set up but I assume that 128GB drive is an SSD and I would assume that he set that as the boot drive with Windows.

I just want to return the system back to the way it was before the BSOD.
