Are you doing a clean install or upgrade? Be sure to boot from the DVD and do a clean install.

Also see my post https://www.sevenforums.com/installat...-problems.html.

Especially notice that part about changing to AHCI.

That is not what i'm looking for.

I boot my pc from the windows 7 cd. i can choose; Repair and than i keep my files etc.
and i can choose; clear install. but that will delete all my files.

So i choose the first one.. It says. take out your cd and start your pc normaly. but your cd in back again and try this repair thing.. again. or something like that. But after doing that it says like it sad before; cannot find HD information on your pc.

When i boot my pc with AHCI i got the blue screen of death..

this is my system spec:
