Hey everyone.  So i am trying to install a fresh windows on my pc.  I formated it as it had a corrupt version of windows installed.  Well now i am running into the problem where when i try to install windows it looks like I have no C drive.  I am guessing that this is because when it formated my hard drive it deleted all my drivers with it.  Now how can i make windows see that I do have a C drive installed if I cant even get to windows main screen to install the exe files.  Thanks for any help guys.

C: is a name given to your hard drive by an installation of Windows, rather than being something that is definitive. Windows does not name the disk so unless it is installed.

 

Boot from your install disk and install on your available drive.

 

Here is a step by step tutorial.

 

After you have installed Windows you can then download your drivers from your computer manufacturer website, then install them.

Oh, ok... my apologies. Here is the MS fix for issue... slightly involved.
