Windows 7: reboot and select proper while installing windows after formattking

reboot and select proper while installing windows after formattking

Hi, I tried to install windows as i experienced frequent freeze. I thought it as mouse freeze. I formatted c drive leaving other drives. i formatted, i installed the windows after just erasing first. It was a kind of failure. I tried another time to reinstall after formatting. I could see some more drives allocated 1 mb other than the usual c: and E only. I reinstalled the windows, it was installing and on reboot, the computer hangs at mobo logo.I tried to power off and power on. but it would not pass it.
after replacing the cmos battery and disconnecting the hard drive, and reconnecting, the logo pass and then failed. i tried to use seagate dos tool, but it would not boot.
Now i am getting the proper error and when i entered it repeates itself continuously .
The fix by the sevenfourm could be performed only if it finds the hard drive. My hard drive is not having any problem whatsoever. i also looked at bios and i could not find hdd in sata 0 port, as usual.
would somebody guide me..

Always disconnect all other drives when installing windows. (just disconnect its power cable)

If the bios does not see the hard drive, then you do not have it connected properly, try again.

There is no reason to remove the battery.
