    so i have a sony vaio laptop
    at first when the windows 8 developers preview was released
    i shrinked and made a new volume and installed windows 8 there
    now few days a go i downloaded the Windows 8 pro RTM and
    made a bootable USB with windows 7 USB/DVD tool
    but now when i boot up the installation cant find the Hard drive :S
    i did the exact same thing with the developers preview but didn't have any problems
    so can anyone please tell me whats wrong and what i should be doing ?
