Does the bios see the hdd?
do you have another PC you can put drive in and see if it works?

See if this helps
boot from installer
on screen after languages, choose repair this pc, not install.
choose troubleshoot
choose advanced
choose command prompt
type diskpart and press enter
type list disk and press enter
this shows all drives available, DVD/USB and hdd, make note of hdd number
type Select disk X - where X is the number of the hdd you want to wipe, change X to that number and press enter
once the drive you want to install on is chosen, type Clean

if it can't see hdd, there might be a problem with hardware or cables.

I have already tried that unfortunatly. But the main bit that confuses me. Is that. When i first plugged in the hard drive and installed windows it ran fine and i had no issues. But when i tried to install the wireless adapter driver, it turned the pc off and thats when i starting having the issue that i explained on my post. The bios picks nothing up either so im stumped unfortunalty
try putting hdd into another PC and see if it shows there?

you wont get very far if bios can't see hdd, wonder how installing a driver made hdd disappear. not seen that before.
