Windows 7: Built in SSD, recognized in Bios but doesn't boot

Built in SSD, recognized in Bios but doesn't boot


I've built an 128gb Samsung (830 Series) SSD into my Acer RL70 Nettop. It was empty and when I tried to boot the nettop there was only the message "ERROR: No boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed". Then I connected the SSD to another computer and installed windows on it and it worked on that PC. When I put it pack into the Nettop i got the same error again. In the Bios, it shows the SSD correctly.

I also tried booting Windows or any recovery tool from a memory stick, but the error message appears before anyting else can load. The memory Stick is shown correctly in the bios and also it works with other computers.
I've tried the options IDE and AHCI as well as different booting priorities.

I don't know what else to try. If the memory stick can't boot, shouldn't it be a problem within the bios then?

Here are a few screens:

Thank you for your help and excuse my English skills

Since I can't run any software or operating system, I will just list what i know:

AMD E-Serie (APU) E-450 APU, 2x 1,66 GHz
4 GB DDR3 SDRAM PC3 10600 (1333 MHz) (2x 2GB Corsair)
Mainboard Chip AMD® A50M
AMD Radeon HD6320
SSD 128GB Samsung 830 Series

I think it's basically this one but i have upgraded Ram and the SSD.
