Windows 7: Windows 7 x64 returns to old computer config. after BIOS update

Windows 7 x64 returns to old computer config. after BIOS update

Dear all,

After I successfully updated my ASUS Rampage III Extreme BIOS (from the BIOS), I got booted into an older configuration of Windows 7.

I lost all my new files, and everything went back to what looks like an old restore point.
I have attached some photo's from the BIOS. I am not much of a computing expert to decode what the some of the BIOS configs mean, but I guess they look alright..?

I also have a screenshot from Disk Management.

BTW: I also run my 2 Intel X-25M's SSDs in a RAID1 (Mirror)

Problem SOLVED!

All I had to do was to change a setting in the BIOS where the drives would be [RAID] not [IDE]
