You had a smart response tech, with small SSD caching big HDD. Unfortunately, that tech uses a RST RAID0-like array creation, and Windows to RST storage and driver binding. You should completely delete RAID array in BIOS-level RST console, setup windows on HDD, and build array again using manual http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/sb/CS-032826.htm , in case you want to continue use of Smart Response.
Thank you, after searching for some time I figured it out as you've stated here and did delete the raid, installed windows 7 home prem SP1 and then went into the Intel Smart Response Technology and enabled acceleration and installed the SSD as a cache drive.
Thanks for your help!
