So how did you get W7 installed if when you tried to install it the installation did not recognize your drive?
Did you clone the OS from the old drive to the new one?
When my partitions got corrupted on my old drive, I used command prompt to create new ones. Then I was able to re-install Windows 7. Even though I created new partitions and re-installed my OS, they became corrupted again.
My new drive came in working perfectly. Its when I already had installed my OS on my new drive, I turned off my computer and turned it back on, my partitions were corrupted and I could no longer access my OS or drive itself.
