Hi Erndog :)

Where did you get the installation media from? Is it a USB, CD or DVD? Is your computer a desktop or a laptop?

Is it an official Windows 7 DVD, or did you download a Windows 7 .iso and burn it on the DVD?

Is your CD/DVD-ROM the first device in the boot priority list in your BIOS?

Hi there,

 

I think thats the problem of SATA configuration.

Go in BIOS ,in Hard Drive/Advanced section try change AHCI to IDE or if already IDE then try change to AHCI, more instructions here.

When that Mode is incorrect your machine doesn't boot and Windows Installation doesn't work.

 

Hope that works :)

 

 

Regards,

Tenis

I am not sure why Windows 7 is not detecting the hard drive. Windows is has native SATA drivers that are supposed to detect the hard drive. I could not find the SATA drivers on AsRocks support site for you motherboard. Download the Intel RST driver here. For 64bit you would download this one.

 

f6flpy-x64.zip

 

Go to BIOS and change the mode back to AHCI.

 

Unzip the files to a USB flash drive. When you get to this screen select Custom and at the next screen attach the USB flash drive and press the load drivers button and hopefully it finds your hard drive.

Windows may not detect the hard drives if you have multiple physical drives in a RAID format.  Great for redundancy, but not so good on an initial install.  Your motherboard driver disk should have the RAID controller driver, but you have to dig to find it, but normally it is under drivers>RAID>(version)>(driver).  Once you do it will then detect the hard drive (in this case, a volume).

 

This is of course assuming that it cannot detect the HD.

Problem has been Solved... The virus that was removed from hard drive. Still remains in drive. Not allowing windows 7 to reinstall.. (No device drivers found) Installed new hard drive and windows 7 loaded. After hard drive was wiped I thought that would take care of problem and windows could be reloaded. Thanks for replying..

I've never seen a malware that causes that issue during a Windows reinstallation to be honest.
