    Hey guys, when I get to this screen

    I donīt have any disk/partition/installation/item to choose.

    I asume this means I have to do a clean install, and lost all my info, am I right?
    EDIT - while attempting to do a clean install I find the same problem, it says there are no controller for any disk or device, and gives me the choice to load a controller, should I find my hard disk controller or driver?

    EDIT 2- there isnīt any driver to download . I have a wd15ears .
    please if someone can help me, at least tell me if there is any way to make it work, or my hard disk is lost for good.

    thanks to all

    There is one thing you other you can try.

    Boot up something that sees the partitions - try PW as you already have it. ( Not usre it will do the job , but try it as you have already downloaded it .I would use gparted )

    Delete the small 100mb partition.

    Rt click the larger partition Modify>mark as active.

    Apply.

    If that works , it should rewrite the entries and then windows boot disc may be able to see it.

    Hey there, well just before you post this, I googled a bit and many people said it could be a problem with installation dvd, although it didnīt seem very credible, I tried burning a new dvd, and, who knows why, now the partitions appeared

    I have two of them,
    DISK 0 PARTITION 1: SYSTEM RESERVED 100 MB , 70 MB FREE, TYPE: SYSTEM
    DISK 0 PARITION 2 TOTAL SIZE 1397.2 GB FREE 1397.2 TYPE PRINCIPAL

    donīt want to mess things up, so I preffer to wait for your advice on what to do

    thanks,

    Casiopea,

    Are you able to run a startup repair using the new installation disc now with it finishing, and able to boot into Windows 7 without issue now?

    It's no problem at all. The steps in the tutorial on the first page of this thread can help give full details on how to. :)

    yes.

    If startup repair doesn't work , scroll down thru the list it gives all the way and see what it tells you.
