    Interesting. So maybe it really is a bios or missing proprietary driver issue in the video above.

    windows 7

    Im totally new to forums and I'm sure I'm in the wrong thread but I need help...;.PLEASE

    I used DISKPART to clean a partition, I've used DISKPART many times but I don't know what happened this time. I was going to reinstall win7 and as usual I selected the disk, next the partition (one of 4), followed by "clean", "active" and finally "assign". then whein I rebooted to install win7 there showed up only one huge partition, all previous 4 were gone. I've searched the net to find a solution to recover my lost partitions but haven't found an answer.

    PLEASE help, a life time of pictures are in one of those lost partitions.

    Windows 3.1 > Windows 10

    So you refused to follow advice of a mod and then repost again in another topic....

    The clean command erased the Master Boot Record on your HDD..
