Hi balu (mahendra ?)

Welcome to Seven Forums.

More details are necessary.

1. Is it a self-assembled system?

2. How did you install Windows 7?

3. Is it a new DVD drive?

As Jumanji says mate an alternative if you are desperate to install and sort it out later is use a USB stick with this

You have still not answered my questions no. 2. and No 3.

1. And yes , change your Sata cable and power cable as well as try a different SATA port.

Other things you can do:

2. Try the suggestions here : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060

3. Pull out your optical drive and reinstall Windows booting from a USB pen drive. After installing Windows (do not activate till you have groomed and checked for a month. You have thirty days to activate.) connect your optical drive and boot. Check whether your drive is recognised

4. If it is a new drive, I would also not rule out the possibility of the drive being DOA. Dead On Arrival. ( That is why I asked whether it is a new drive and you didn't answer.) If you had bought it from a brick and mortar store take it there and have it checked.

Won't recognize all of 1TB internal drive.
I just built a new computer with Windows 7 32 bit. I installed a 1TB hard drive, but the system is showing only 127GB. Is this due to the 32 bit system. I know the 32 bit will only recognize 4GB of ram and that's what I installed. Is there a way I can have the system recognize the full 1TB?
