    I tried to install Windows 7 again due to me having a blue screen and after multiple attempts to reinstall, roll back or just disable drivers. Repairing and everything. I decided to just clean install again. For some reason my hard drive says unallocated when trying to install Windows 7 and I can't use it. I even tried to make a partition but, it didn't work.

    Is the drive even recognized? SSDs & some RAID drives need to have drivers installed before Win7 even knows they are there.

    It is also possible your blue screens were related to a hard drive problem.

    There are tools available from the Win7 disk which you could use, like try reformatting the drive before install
