Windows 7 ultimate HDD error
right, ive got windows 7 ultimate 32bit installed on my desktop, its been working fine for ages, however this morning i went to boot it up and it it camne up with boot CD: no disc error
so i changed my first boot device from CD-rom to harddisk rebooted and then i had the white writing and it said disk error please insert system disk, so i went into Bios and i went into the bit to auto scan for a hdd and nothing, i tried scanning for 0 master drive 0 slave and the only dirve it found as a master was my dvd-rom, i tried the win 7 ultimate disc and it coudlnt find a version of windows 7 installed. so i'm at a real loose end as i use that desktop for work and atm im using and old xp home edition pc.
could really really do with some help to fix it, as i say win 7 has been working fine for ages.

hi all, well ive tried 5 diff IDE cables and 3 diff power cables and still no luck, i also went to do a reinstall and win7 didnt even detect the hard drive, i assume that means my hard drive is dead? i had a theory that my custom caase may be the hardrive killer as they arent bolted in they just sit in a hardrive removeable bay with a cooling fan underneath perhaps that may be the cause? can any1 suggest a decent cheap case and a decent IDE HDD thats a reasonable size,
many thanks for the help i shall be doing rep points
