Missing Operating system.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
having myself a bit of a problem, novice system builder here.
Built my computer about a year ago with 6GB of ram, ran Windows 7 for a year using 2 HDD in Raid 0. Yesterday I installed new ram and it all runs fine into the bios and my "mem ok" motherboard function says its all good. I run my recover CD through start up repair and all the other options yielding no result. I see many people with the same issue being resolved with start up repair, but the difference seems to be where the windows 7 repair disk has the option to select a partition. I have no partitions detected. So I'm wondering if my drives are shot, and if so am I looking at buying new drives and operating system (I bought OEM, probably screwed)? Or is there something else I can do.
Sorry, it's very late, and i'm rather frustrated at the moment.

Also tried putting the old ram back in and it's the same problem, so not a ram issue i guess. Something must've happened to my HDD?

My first question is can you get to the bios? and if so, do both your drives show up? (don't know much about how raids function in the bios. do they show up as a single drive or two?)

yes, sorry i forgot to mention. Both drives are detectable. The OS is not.
And for some reason my keyboard won't work on my Start up disk's command prompt...

My next thought would be to create a portable windows usb or dvd to boot into so that you can see if the problem is your os and/ or data is still there or if you only need to repair or replace certain files.
