In the bios there are two settings for boot device.
...What king of device ie. HDD, optical drive, etc..
...Which HDD to use

Is your SSD listed as a HDD and set as the boot HDD?

RAID not enabled?

The force 3 is listed as a hard drive and in the boot priorities listed as the only hard drive. All sata ports are in AHCI mode and are not running in raid.

Welcome to OCN!

You'll find an answer here http://www.overclock.net/t/1156654/seans-windows-7-install-optimization-guide-for-ssds-hdds
You do realize to load win7 on a UEFI Bios you'll need to use Diskpart and Convert MBR etc right?
Read the link above, promise you won't regret it!

Feel free to PM me if I can help any further.
