My brother was trying to restore his friends laptop and during the process the power got disconnected and the C Drive got wiped--I believe.
I decided to fix it I would do a fresh install of Windows 7.
Everything was going great and I got the recovery disk to install, but my problem was the Hard drive wasn't showing up as unallocated disk space. The drive did show up, but not as any free space.
I tried to do some tutorials in diskpart to fix the drive, but to no avail.
Now, I can't even get windows, or BIOS to detect the drive.
The last diskpart command I did was to reformat it.
It wasn't the quick reformat, but the one that takes an extremely long time.
That's when I noticed it wasn't detecting anymore.
