Windows 7: My operating system is not found? but my HDD is accessible?

I asked you which diagnostics you ran. Since there is not even a make or model of the PC we don't know if it has the full Dell or HP hardware diagnostics, but you should have noticed if it was testing the HD. If not run it again. Meanwhile fill in your System Specs so others are inclined to help you.

If your diagnostics didn't test HD or is uncertain then determine the HD make by googling the serial number listed for it in BIOS setup to download its HD Diagnostic bootable CD, or run Seatools bootable CD extended scan, and then the Disk Check from Option Two in link above from the Win7 DVD or Repair CD command line.

If you need further help doing any of these steps just ask back and someone will help you.
