    I have pc that preiously had xp on 1 mirror raid.

    I reinstalled w7 on that raid array and after that bsods.

    I destroyed that array in raid conf and swithed off sata raid in bios.

    After that i normaly see hdds in bios.

    Now w7 doesnt see disks in installation.

    Tried with raid driver and sata ide driver i used to see the array but that doesnt help.

    Do i need to pull out 2 drives and delete partitions on them before w7 can see them as normal drives in setup ???????

    Things are more idiotic than i originaly tought so.

    When i boot setup it says no hdd drives and offers sata driver menu....===> Browse ===> find driver ===> NO HDD.

    After that when you click browse I see the drives in setup ?????????!!!!!!!??????!!!!!!!!!! but cant resume to format/create partitions cause it want go further. (it installed the correct driver i see it in browse driver but WTF)

    OK Boot your windows 7 installation disk and at the screen that you would change/alter the language keyboard setting etc, do this

    Code:
    hold the "Shift" key and hit the F10 hot-key to open a command window.
    Then type Diskpart

    then type list disk

    select disk 0
    clean

    select disk 1
    clean

    exit and then

    then re start the Windows setup

    (OP)
    I solved it.

    It had nothing to do with partitions.

    The board is like 8 years old and back then bios was badly writen (started to work in IT back in the days).

    NOW hear this out.....

    I had 2 sata drives hooked to sata 1&2 and i had flash drive in there for sata/raid drivers.

    In HDD priority in bios flash drive was at first place (never had any problms with newer boards).

    After changing boot priority on one of the hdds it didnt need any driver(like it should).

    Case closed.
