Error in installing windows 7, installer cant detect hard disk

I messed up whilst installing windows 7 over older windows 7 drive. I formatted the windows 7 drive and again tried to deleted that partition, but that deletion process took around 10-15 minutes, so restarted my system. Now i cannot install any of the windows os or even linux . Please anybody help me out to solve this problem

Download and burn (from other computer) an iso of the program Partition Wizard. Boot the CD and from there format all the hard drive.
