In your BIOS, can it identify your HDD?
If not, I would say that your HDD is dead.

I did not try to put a disk in and re-install WINDOWS 7 Home premium x64 from my DVD/CD-ROM DRIVE.

I dont know how to proceed because my BASIC MBR shows [Unallocated].

Partition Wizard never ever gave me any messages like that, I agree with others, you have a bad drive, and that`s why windows won`t finish installing.

And whatever you`re using to attempt to install windows is corrupted, that is what it`s telling you in post #15

YEP! NOTHING APPEARS - C: HARD DISK DRIVE IS NOT CONNECTED IN ORDER TO INSTALL WINDOWS

And what is 7.46 GB ??
THIS IS MY USB
7.46 GB STICK FLASH DRIVE.

IS THERE A WAY TO FIX MY LAPTOP'S C: DRIVE?


Now, I try again, boot my laptop and select F12, then choose boot from
my laptop's DVD/CD-ROM DRIVE and see this:

WINDOWS CANNOT BE INSTALLED TO DISK 0 PARTITION 2
Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The disk may fail soon. If other hard disks are available, install Windows to another location.
