Re: Not finding hdd in cd boot installation
The FIRST thing you should do is use the Win7 Backup feature to create and burn a Win7 Repair CD. IF you don't do that, you will not have a way to repair your Win7 boot loader, should something go wrong.

Only AFTER you have done these, should you move forward with installing Ubuntu. IF you rush into it, you will virtually guarantee that (1) you will hose up Win7 in some way, and (2) you will not have a way to repair it or restore it.
Ubuntu 16.04 Mate, Mint 17.3; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
