Default Re: HELP i messed up win7 install on ssd!!!

Did you power your pc down when you replaced the ssd with your regular hdd? shut your pc down (un-plug it from the wall for 10 minutes) and re-try with your hdd. If it still does not boot, you can try a start up repair
Startup Repair - Windows 7 Forums

If you get no joy from that, try to restore the MBR (Master Boot Record)
MBR - Restore Windows 7 Master Boot Record - Windows 7 Forums

There is no reason that you should get the W7 installer when you put your old drive back in if it was disconnected and you removed the power from your pc when you disconnected/reconnected the drives

You can try to reinstall windows on the ssd drive after you power off your pc (un-plug it), ground yourself out on the frame of the pc and pop the ssd drive back in
My corsair ssd has a green light on it and will turn red if it fails. Did you notice any lights on the ssd?
