Windows 7: driver not detected

30 Jun 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
driver not detected


My pc was slow and freezed I manually restarted pc it didnt boot up at first after many restarts it booted up succesfully but it took while to login and pc was very slow after trying to install fresh copy of windows 7 there was no partitions detected after many tries partitions appeared but I couldn't install windows an error code 0x80070570 and after that I couldn't boot from hard drive it booted up from CD/DVD. I ran Seagate diagnostics tool at first it detected hard drive but didn't scan and after next try It didn't detect any hard drive.

When the drive is detected it gives me error (read disk error click CTRL+ALT+DEL) to restart after many restarts something called SLIC appeared it tried to boot but it failed every time.

I removed all cables and reconnected them again that didn't work
Controller is native IDE

Well when you said it detected the drive I did not see what your problem was after that.

Ok I explain again

My current hard drive can't be detected when booting because when I turn it my pc on it boots from CD/DVD, but in BIOS it shows that it is connected, when I triedto install windows it doesn't show any partitions. So I tried a different faulty hard drive to check the cables so it detected partitions of my (second hard drive that I dont use) in the windows installation so I knew it is not the cables that causing the problem but why it doesn't detect my other hard drive when booting or installing windows.

I want to know why my hard drive is not detected what is causing this problem and if I can fix this or should I buy new hard drive?

You're mixing detection and booting. Your PC can detect a drive that is not bootable, it just won't boot from it. If that drive previously contained a Windows installation, and that filesystem got corrupted, it's likely the drive will no longer boot. If the BIOS sees it, then the Windows installer should also see it.

So, you're saying the BIOS sees it but the Windows installer does not?

If you have access to a working PC, I would download and burn the ISO of the Minitool Partition Wizard Boot CD, boot from that (with the drive connected) and see if it can read the drive and list the partitions on it.
