Have you checked the settings in the hardware BIOS/UEFI? It seems as if your SSD could be set up as the primary hard disk.

my next question is: if Win7(x86) installs properly, will all x86 software I install also work?

comment Windows 7 optimization technique
It would be better if the users view the videos with web browser, versus downloading them, unless they need to edit the videos. If downloading videos is required then upgrade the internet bandwidth to at least 90mb's/sec, or move then with flash drives from one machine to another.

BTW, if any of the partitions has problems, Windows will trap this exception and execute CHKNTFS to attempt to repair them. My laptop now gets to the login screen within 9 seconds from the time I power it up. You can manually run CHKNTFS whenever you choose to do so.

That works fine for NTFS un-hidden partitions with logical drive designations, however virtually all laptop's like mine have a hidden OEM partition, (PQSERVICE for Acer's), which is used for Recovery and CHKNTFS doesn't support these with the /X option. So, I had to tweak a registry value to work around this limitation (See my answer below).
