I know that`s notwhat you want to hear but..

Which computer is restarting now ??? The same one or do you have the drive on another PC ?

So you`re saying the hard drive is not seen by windows on 2 seperate computers ? And yet the bios sees the drive on 2 seperate computers ?

I would just chuck that drive in the trash, this will teach you to backup your data from now on.

i have a Dell Optiplex 9020. it came without a hard drive & i installed a 1TB SATA HD but im having a problem installing Win 7 32bit.

The Win7 is on a USB flash drive. when i try to install it, it shows NO Hard Drive detected but in the BIOS settings, the HD does appear.

i have tried the "list Disc" option using the command prompt but that only shows the USB flash drive.

MSmoorad, you should start a new thread as this one is 2 years old and it is marked as solved.

Does it shows all disk properties on BIOS?
Is it set as SATA or IDE?

Did you check the disk cables?

During installation, did you deleted all partitions?
