Hi Yelena,
you may have to format the drive to the Windows file system (ntfs), I 
have found that the Windows CD can pop up
an error, "No Hard Drive Found", if hard drive has been formatted to the 
Linux file system.
You can do this with the Live Ubuntu CD, or GParted Live CD , you can 
download that free from
Would be a very good idea to get some help with this.
Take Care
