Windows 7: Operating System Not Found, Windows cant find my HDD

09 May 2013   #11

Windows 7 ultimate 32


Are u using laptop or desktop?
If its a desktop, i recommend to change the cables.
For example, if its a SATA, replace with new SATA. If its a IDE, try to replace with new IDE. Because you said u couldn't find any hard disk when u entered into bios. So, i think this would help u.

Sorry if i'm wrong.

Else, try changing boot priority of your devices....

Alright, so this problem is a little complicated. My computer fell a couple days ago, and I had to get a new hard drive. Unfortunately, my mother let my uncle who is NOT a professional install a "new" hard drive, which was actually his old one and came with Linux and not Windows. It worked...
