I have even a sadder story. I paid the $20 bucks and then decided to do a Clean Install. I have never used it.
Sell it on Ebay - Lol

Post a screenshot of your Disk Management so that we can see what mess you really made. Then we'll go from there.

When you rebooted, did you still have only the SSD drive connected and did you get a screen asking whether you wanted to boot into Windows7 or Windows 7? Go into bios and set the DVD as first boot device and the SSD as second boot device, remove the DVD, make sure the SSD only is connected and save and exit. Do you still get the dual boot screen?
