Try reconnecting the disk data and power cables, if its still undetected on bios, then the disk is dead.

If the BIOS does detect it, you probably just need to boot from your Windows 7 disc and run a repair.

1. Is this a laptop or a desktop PC?

2. Have you changed any settings in the BIOS? Particularly the Boot Order.

3. Do you have any extra hard drives (or just one) or external drives (including USB sticks) connected while this is happening?
