"No device driver were found." HDD on laptop not detected.

So my HDD is detected on bios.
It is on AHCI mode.
I ran the seagate tools (i have a seagate hdd)
it came back with 9 errors but the tool fixed it and it is passed now.
I use a usb stick Windows 7 Installer.

My laptop model is Acer Aspire 4750g.

Cannot reinstall OS
BTW, I followed the instructions given there.

and i'm temporarily using a Linux Backtrack (it installed good).
Thanks for helping guys.

All Linux code must be deleted using the CLEAN ALL command.As you have had linux on the HD you need do a Clean all.

Try Cleaning the HD Drive, using Step one in this tutorial:
SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
& than Reboot PC to install.
Let Acer Recovery disk do the partitioning.

We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.
& made the Startup Repair CD.

Did you make the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?

oh well, before I install the linux, I "CLEAN" it on diskpart.
and my mistake i didn't have a recovery disk and there is no available recovery disk on the acer site (i think due to my location. I'm from Philippines.)

I will try again cleaning the whole HDD.
