Lost disk 2 and partition D when installing window 7

hi here is a shoot of my disk management as described in this post

Windows Update will not update and I've tried multiple fixes

please note that disk f is an external hard disk,

so the problem is that disk D is not there anymore as when i did clean i might chossed the wrong one but before i wrote down the disks capacity and the disk i choosed to clean matched the disk c capacity,now i installed /formatted the c again,

so is there anywhere to bring back this drive?

Hi,
After selecting the correct disk just sit and wait for the wizard to complete.
You might get lucky

And yes you had a system reserved partition it shows as 101mb unallocated space now.

Hi,
It looks like windows got installed on the correct disk as where the previous install was on
You'd want to select disk 1 and recovery wizard on it and cross your fingers.

Hi,
From your last screen shot you have disk 1 which is where you say D partition was
Just click on partition recovery wizard listing to the left of it.

This is why you always disconnect the power cable from any other drives before attempting to install Windows.
