HI! its me again lolz... thank you all for always helping me out.... here's my problem... I did not use AHCI when I install my new windows 7 os and I used IDE, is there a way to re do it? because when i switch it to AHCI from efi something lolz, it restarted and show missing operating system... by the way, I already installed windows 7 and activated it, can i re install everything again if that is the only fix, my Seagate HDD won't format either so i am not sure what to do... thanks a lot again.... Smile
ohhh by the way, should i leave it IDE or should i switch it to ahci... sorry for being so ignorant.. I tried my best to research both of them but I still don't get it... thanks again...
Go back in the EFI and switch back to IDE. Then follow this tutorial first http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/618...html?ltr=A and then go back in the efi to switch back to ACHI.

As for your Seagate HDD, here's how to format it within Windows: http://www.top-windows-tutorials.com/for...drive.html
