hi all, today i was assembling my new gaming rig, i was stupid in powering on the computer several test times when the HDD was sideways so i guess that was enough to corrupt it.

when i boot up the computer the bios DOES recognize the HDD is there and how much is left. but when i try to boot it it says "no boot device available"

my HDD is a 1TB cavalier black western digital. the files seem to be intact as when i ran the windows 7 repair disk (which did nothing it cant detect my OS). i was able to browse through all my files.

is there a way for me to repair the error (would the western digital data lifegard diagnostics solve the problem)?

also when i try to install windows 7 it doesnt allow me to create a new partiton in setup so thats out

"i was assembling my new gaming rig" Does this mean you you had W7 installed on different hardware, did you change the mb and cpu and other parts.
It helps if you provide such details, so we don't have to guess what's going on.
