I didn't try any of the steps, I wasn't on my pc at all for the past week really.
I literally came back to my PC after it being off for a day or 2 and I booted into Asus EZ Flash and it detected all my HDDs, for some odd reason Windows is on my D Drive not my C.
I'm not trying to be rude but it's summer and I do shit often.

Why are you using Asus Easy Flash? Are you trying to update the BIOS?

The drives will often show different letters in the Boot mode.

Please tell us exactly what you are trying to do now .

I went to Asus EZ Flash, because I've used it before and I remember it showing all my files, ETC.
So I was thinking maybe the installation didn't show my drives for some odd reason, and it did.
And Layback if you read one of my other posts you would have seen I've already fixed my HDD problem, I'm not ignoring the steps to be an asshole I just don't need to try them because that issue has already been fixed.

Well I must of misunderstood something. Your hard drive problem is fixed and yet you see all your files using Asus EZ Flash which is only used to update bios.

I'm lost so I will go back to watching.

I'm not seeing what you don't understand.
You can see literally every file on your PC from Asus EZ Flash.
I went on asus ez flash a couple days ago and it didn't show anything it said something like "No drivers detected" or some shit like that, now it shows all my Hard Drives.
So what don't you understand?

It's nice that you can see your files in EasyFlash, a utility that's only meant to flash the BIOS. But what does that have to do with repairing or reinstalling your Win7?

You need to either follow the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start which tries everything possible to get Win7 to start.

Or you need to Troubleshoot Windows 7 Installation Failures - Windows 7 Help Forums

When you report back results of those steps then we will know better how to help you.

The whole reason I made this thread was because my HDD wasn't located in the Windows Installation , so I couldn't reinstall it.
