    I was working on my windows vista home premium editions when I restarted my system because it crashed.

    I have been trying to restart without success, it seems like the HD doesn't exist for any SO except by the BIOS. I mean the HD is recognized by the BIOS but I can see any partitions of the HD when I try to install Windows 7, Vista or Ubuntu.

    I used Ubuntu as a live CD to check if I can recovery my information on the disk, But again, not HD detected by Ubuntu.

    When I am trying to install Win 7 or Vista I get a window asking me for drivers for CD or DVD.

    Somebody tell my disk may be blocked, but I don't know what that's it mean and how to fix it.

    Please tell what may be happening and what I can do.

    Thanks in advance

    Read and Print this out:

    Also, in the BIOS, make sure the Boot Sequence Order is as follows: Hard Disk first, followed by the Floppy Drive second, followed by the CD/DVD Drive third.
    First inspect the Boot Sequence Order in the BIOS, correct if necessary, then try booting the Operating System before exercising any of the methods in the above link.
