Help! Windows 8 install won't see hard drive after erase! Tags: Drivers Hard Drives Windows 8 Last response: April 16, 2013 3:14 PM in Windows 8 Share Bumpd April 15, 2013 11:33:36 PM Hi everyone I did an advanced secure erase of my hard drive using Parted Magic ( with a view to selling my laptop). Everything worked fine, but now when I try to install Windows 8 it can't see my hard drive. It prompts me for storage drivers, so I have tried both drivers from the manufacturer and from Intels site, but nothing seems to work. Also when I run windows 8 auto repair at install it say something about a missing boot file! I've googled but to no avail, can anyone help me?
