My problem is a strange one, which I'm sure has come up in the past, so here it goes:
I've been having the Windows Home Security 2012 virus for the past couple of days, been using Malwarebytes with no results. As of now, I have a master (140gb C and D) and a slave (250gb E).
My C drive is the system drive, D drive was where i had Windows Vista (this was a dual boot machine originally). I noticed one day that my D partition was completely empty for some reason, I tried to format that drive and i got the bad sectors error.
Now here i am trying to run windows 7 ultimate installation from the desktop, I choose the customize option to wipe out everything on the drive. Now the only drive that is visible is the master, showing C and D (Disk 0 and Disk 1). For some reason my large E drive isnt visible.
I continue with Drive C and I get the error stating that Windows 7 cannot be installed on this drive, there is no reasoning behind this.
I unplugged my master drive from the mother board and reset my jumpers on the slave drive to Cable Select, even tried the default master arrangement regardless of which SATA cable is being used. I put the windows disk in the DVD drive and change my boot order to reflect the DVD rom....I don't get a prompt to boot from disk for whatever reason so I am stuck.
I would either like to install from the desktop to my E drive (i'm thinking of shrinking and creating a new partition for this before i try again)...or just overwrite my system drive and start fresh.
Thanks for the help.
