SSD Problems

I recently installed a new Solid State Drive into my computer because I wanted it mostly for booting from. When I did this, I just thought that I could install my operating system to it, then delete everything from my old hard disk by formatting it after I had backed it all up. I did all that, but now there have been problems. When I turn on my computer, it asks me what operating system I want to boot, but the two options that it gives me are both Windows 7, and only one of the options works. I think that the computer still thinks that there is a copy of windows 7 on my HDD, but there isn't. I would like it to just boot into windows from my SSD. After seeing this, I thought that I could just go into the BIOS and change the boot order, so I gave the SSD priority over the HDD. Now, when I try and boot, it says "BOOT FROM CD: DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER". This does not make any sense to me, and it even tells me this when my Windows 7 Disk is in my disc drive. Any help with getting rid of the multiple OS screen and the Disk boot failure message would be appreciated.

You could also disconnect the old HDD and boot the system with your Win 7 DVD and select the repair option.
