Windows 7: SSD with Unallocated partition will not display

13 Mar 2019   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
SSD with Unallocated partition will not display

Long story short- computer crashed- would not boot
Had SSD as the C drive and been operating for a long time prior.
Could not get a saved system back-up copy from Macrium to refresh as usual.
Decided to do a fresh W-7 Ultimate reinstall from retail copy- so decided to reformat the SSD (C drive)
PROBABLE SCREW_UP: Reformatted to Unallocated space thinking that would do a trouble free install..Used (another W-7 computer) a USB/SSD adapter to do this (computer didn't like it at all but EASEUS partition tool did it anyway!

Now back in the first computer- The W-7 install disk will default about half way past the initial segment as it doesn't like the target.

About out of ideas?!? [did i brick it?]

Q- What should the SSD being used as the system C-drive be formatted to in order to load the fresh operating system onto it?

Q-2: Is there a way to make the drive with the Unallocated partition step up and be displayed?

You say reformatted. Did you create partitions and format? If you blank the drive is remove all partitions windows should create what it needs

Apparently the SSD is "frozen" and preventing from being restored to factory specs. It still exhibits in Disk Management as having a partition altho in EASEUS partition program I wiped it to Unallocated space. Don't know why they differ.
Be fiddling with it more tomorrow.

Boot from Win 7 installation disk, go to install - advanced - delete ALL partitions - Create new.
It will create a M$ Reserved - RAW - 120M partition and a big NTFS partition.
Choose to install on the big NTFS partition.
Clean Install Windows 7
