Ok so I've completely formatted my c drive. When the HD is plugged in I get the message on screen saying something like remove any drives that don't contain an operating system and restart.

Ok so I've completely formatted my c drive. When the HD is plugged in I get the message on screen saying something like remove any drives that don't contain an operating system and restart.

So I unplug the SATA cable and restart. I can then boot from the cd which I couldn't before. When it comes to the screen on where to install it I get the message saying windows cant install to drive 0 partition as the drivers are not enabled in the bios or something like that.

I've tried to clean it using the command prompt but still no luck. It can see my hard drive so it's not like it cant see it. I really don't know what to do now.
I've included a photo of that screen also.

Oh and the 'new' button to create a new partition doesn't work as it's not lit up. Thanks guys.

The problem is that the BIOS is configured to boot from the hard disk first and since you have wiped it there is no longer an operating system there to be booted. You need to get into the BIOS and change the boot order so the CD/DVD drive is checked as a boot device before the hard disk. With the CD/DVD drive being the first boot option, if there is not disk present, the BIOS will automatically go for the second option – the hard disk.

You should also see an option to set a USB drive as a boot option if you have Windows 10 on a USB memory stick.

Some BIOS systems only show the option if there is a suitable media in a CD/DVD or USB drive. In fact, on my laptop, the removable devices are put to the bottom of the list if there is no suitable media present, so with no CD/DVD or USB drive present, the hard drive boot becomes the first option. If the removable media are introduced again, the computer will not boot from them until I go into the BIOS again and push the hard drive back down the order.

As the computer starts to boot up, there is normally a brief message displayed to tell you which key to press to get into the BIOS set-up.

I hope this helps.

I just had this problem with my last build. Unplug all but the windows drive as the message says. Reboot, shut down, plug in the next drive and reboot. repeat for every drive. It is a BIOS issue that sometimes cannot be resolved any other way. Once done all your drives will show up. Under no circumstances should you alter the BIOS once you have the missing drives back. Set the BIOS up before you start as any future changes will bring the problem back, and you have to start all over again. It isn't a mechanical or electrical problem, it is a confused BIOS problem and can only be resolved this way.

Of course it is not lit up, you already created a partition by formatting. you should not have done that. you should boot from the cd by telling the bios to use that as the first boot device. Then use the advanced option to delete ALL partitons and create a new one to load on.
