Hey as topic says i got an message ''Error loading operating system''.
I have two hdd drives on the one i keep my backups and important files.On the second i use my operating system.
The problem comes from that my brother has played with gparted and pressed the ''create new partition table'' on the first drive.
So now i can't install any os and got error saying that hdd has no space.
I found a way to install,but i had to delete the mbr.
But when again connected the both cables to the first hdd got the error.
Any suggestion on what to do?

It's a Seagate drive, so the first thing to try would be to use the drive manufacturer's own bootable SeaTools Utility to write all zeroes to everything on it. The option you want is Erase Overwrite Full

To avoid mishaps, disconnect the 2nd drive beforehand

Does it boot up at all?
If so, can you give us a screencap of the Disk Management window?

Overall, you're probably looking at 2 things...
  1. A full OS reinstall.
  2. Giving your brother a dopeslap to the back of his head.

The hard disk is booting.
BIOS is able to detect the drive.
But everytime when i install OS and turn off and on the pc it shows me the error.
I can't provide screenshot due this im tired of installing Windows .....

Get https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/gparted_live.html and make a bootable USB with it, then you can reverse whatever your brother did.

Connect only a single drive.
Clean it with diskpart clean. This removes everything from the drive, so make backups before.
Install windows with only this single drive connected.

Test, if pc reboots properly.
Only then reconnect the other drive.
I connected only one drive as usual,used the diskpart to clean the drive.
But now i can't install Windows,it shows me that my HDD have only 84 kb.
 
You can try changing partitioning on the drive MBR->GPT->MBR and see, if that resets the capacity.
Or cleaning the drive with diskpart one more time.

But - most likely it's dead. Experiments with gparted is just an unfortunate coincidence.

With diskpart.
select disk x
convert gpt
convert mbr
After type the commands,got this :
Virtual disk service error.
The specified disk in not convertible because the size is less than the minimum required for GPT disks.
Got the same when try to convert both,gpt or mbr.
And diskpart is showing only 80 kb.

Big thanks,guys !!!!
I used the Seatools for DOS.
First i used the option '''Set capacity to max native'' and then i full erased the HDD.And now everything is ok !
