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?

Use Parted Magic to format it then try again, in order for it to be seen by windows disk.
