Windows 7: No partitions showing - what am I doing wrong ?

18 Oct 2009   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit

When i created my secondary partition i did not reference any BIOS settings. I used Acronis to resize my c:\ into a new partition and made it also a primary. Even though the resize formatted the secondary partition, i end up need to do the format again (to make the dual boot install work).

Btw, is this a mono HDD system?

Linux and Windows 7... problems on my laptop, please help me.. I beg.
Please Help. How?

I know this thread is OLD. But, I have the EXACT same problem. I have no C: drive or whatever. NOTHING. No partition. I can't start up my Wins7. My drives and partitions are gone! It all started when I was installing Ubuntu the advanced way (I didn't know what I was doing) and when it was installing into the partition or something, I pulled the plug. Now I have nothing. I can access the F1-f12 menu Bios thing. But I don't have a partition. I cant start up the laptop. Help...

Now, how can I gain back my C: drive or whatever, main partition!? It says I can insert a disk, USB, or whatever like WIlliamb's.. (sp?) problem.

I'm sorry, I surfed through many, many threads. No help. No savior. Is there anyone smart enough to help this nub?
