Reset Raid Data, how can I get it back?
I turned off my computer, took the hard drive out, and then booted the computer back up. After hitting Crtl + I in the configuration utility option, it gave me a menu in which 1. Create Raid Volume, 4. Recovery Volume Options, and 2. Delete Raid Volume are greyed out. The rest of the menu is 3. Reset to Non-Raid, 5. Accelaration Options, and 6. Exit. I pressed 3. and choose the Samsung SSD PM83 29.8GB Cache disk and set it to non raid. After I reset it I was aloud to do what I needed to do.
This is the screen after I selected Crtl+I

The reason why I did this is because my PC was unbootable and I had to grab items out of it. Only doing that would of allowed me to access set up and run a data recovery CD. I just felt I needed to give a reason why I did what I did, now I need help getting it back to the way it was or at least back to normal.
When I boot up my computer after the start up logo's and processes, it used pop up in white letters "Operating System Not Found". So I did what anyone might do, and put in my Windows installation disk and tried to install it. When it told me whether I wanted a clean install or to just upgrade, I choose a clean install. The problem with this is, when it displays my partitions it shows everything but my 1TB hard drive on the list. The 1TB drive is what I had before this entire mess, and I had well over 100 GB worth of data used on it.
I installed the CD on the SSD one and after the installation was over, I noticed that my computer only had 20GB to work with, which I knew was wrong because I have 1TB before all of this. Here is a picture after I installed it, me just going back on the CD to act like I'm going to start a new installation.

So with that being said, if I restart my computer at the moment and access the configuration by using Ctrl + I it gives me a pop up, then the menu similar to before but there is a difference.

As you notice, it shows 931.5GB disabled and the SSD switched to Non-Raid, unlike before I reset it.
I am trying to supply you with as much information and back up story as I can so you can get a good idea of what is going on and the issues to it.
I understand that once I reset it, it deleted information but how can I re-reset it so that it is back to normal or like before I reset the drive to Non-Raid. I want to be able to insert my CD and have windows install like normal. I am just trying to dig my way out of this hole I created. I drive
