Windows 7: Unable to reinstall Windows 7

Windows 7 64 bit
Unable to reinstall Windows 7 - no partitions showing up

Hello. My Windows started causing me problems and it was unable to boot. But when I decided to reinstall it, the setup showed me that I have no partitions on my hard drive. After that I started Partition Wizard Bootable CD and it showed that my two local drives (C: and D: ) were still there with all files on them, but they had letters like "*". What can I do to fix this problem and reinstall my OS? Any help is appreciated.
