Try using windows installation disc and use repair tool inside. Also check bios if all drives are listed, showing and connected properly.

Install hard drive as portable on some other working PC. go to disk management, delete current partition or do a low level format. Re partition and check.

This generally used to happen when the boot sector or partition was not done correctly.

Portable as if you can put it in some external casing(USB), if you got one or plug it in some working system as a secondary drive and check if windows partition, system reserved partition(100mb with win7) is there and unchanged. You can use windows installation disk for minor boot partition repair related issues.

Use Easus Partition Manager Home Edition to fix partition info.

EaseUS needs the os to load up
My computer only detects the C Drive but shows 0 bytes of space!
Anyways i took the extreme step and i formatted the C Drive and re-installed 32-bit OS (downgraded from 64-bit)
Mods close the thread please
