Windows 7: Help Needed!!! (Boot issues w/ Intel 320 and Bios)

Windows 7 Professional x64
Help Needed!!! (Boot issues w/ Intel 320 and Bios)

I am totally sunk....

I am kind of good with computers, but not good enough to figure things out.

So I recently ordered a PC from CyberPowerPC. I ordered a 120gb Intel 320 SSD, a 2TB HDD, and a 60gb OCZ Agility 3 Intel SRT Drive.
When I got the PC, the boot drive was the 2TB hard drive for some reason. So I bought a program called Paragon that migrated my OS to my SSD. It worked! But then it told me to activate my SSD in the boot menu in my BIOS. I have an ASRock Professional Gen3 Z68 Fatal1ty Mobo with an Intel 2700k.

I look in my BIOS, and there are 3 things listed there. My HDD, my CD drive, and Disabled. It says Disabled as if the SSD is not on or something.

As of now, I am panicking and I have no idea what to do. I have been switching around what partitions should be active in my Windows 7 CD but nothing is working! Does it have something to do with the SRT drive???


I will reply to any questions immediately!

If it was me, and I was certain the drives were okay, I would probably back my data up and do a clean install.

You also might want to wait for more answers, but I think you might be wasting that 60 GB drive, considering you already have an SSD. You might be able to do without it and simplify the setup.
