I NEED HELP PLEASE!!!! (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???


PLEASE HELP ME!!!! :( 

I will reply to any questions immediately!

Under HDD in BIOS is a sub menu where you select which HDD to start from, the computer looks at the SSD as a HDD.

There are no sub-menus or anything that looks like what you have stated. This is what shows up in the boot order menu. No sub folders whatsoever.

Boot Option #1

RAID: ST2000DM001-9YN164 (probably the 2TB hdd)
RAID: P3: Optiarc DVD RW AD-728 (CD drive)
Disabled

Thanks so much for responding by the way!!!!

Page 81 in your manual;

"Boot Option Priorities
Boot Option #1
Set the fi rst priority of the system boot device.
Boot Option #2
Set the second priority of the system boot device.
Boot Option #3
Set the third priority of the system boot device.
Boot Option #4
Set the fourth priority of the system boot device.
Boot Option #5

Hard Drive BBS is where you choose what drive.

Thanks for your continued attention! I really appreciate it!

Under this menu, there are two things;

RAID: ST2000DM001-9YN164
Disabled

That's all there is...


I think the "Disabled" is the SSD the OS is on. Is there anyway to "Enable" it?

Also, the Paragon Utility thing deleted the OS on my HDD and put it on my SSD - which I am unable to boot on because it is "Disabled". So I can't get on the Desktop of my computer either, which restricts me to only my BIOS and my Windows 7 CD with a command prompt...

Disabled can only be disabled SATA controller so check those.
