I reformatted and deleted partitions in my hard drive using mini tool partition wizard but before I formatted it runs in three Windows,XP Vista and 7, then I try to install Windows again and operating system not found, I want to install again Windows 7, or Ubuntu later if possible, we have 2 PCs with the same brand and model here, I try to put the other hard drive and it works very well, it means the problem is in my hard drive which I reformatted, which is the easiest way to to solve OS not found?

Do you have any driver disks with your PCs? Did you try to add SATA driver manually?

Since you have 2 identical PCs, you always can clone hard drive of healthy machine. But make sure that cloning direction is right: I am always confused with Norton Ghost dialogues which one is source which - destination...

The easiest way to solve "OS not found" is to install an OS.

The not so easy way is to install a bootloader (GRUB works well), and point it to the OS's you cannot find.
