Question about Computers & Internet
There should be enough drivers on your Windows 7 installation CD to at least install Win 7.
Since you did check your jumpers on the drive so that the drive is set to Master, be certain and that your ribbon cable is OK and snug to the drive.
Before attempting to install Win 7 again, go into your BIOS (usually F1 or F2) and be certain that the drive is present. While there, check your memory to see if the amount is correct.
If the drive is still not present, since the drive and cable are OK (if you used the same cable to test in your other computer), then the IDE connector on the board could be faulty. It's also possible that there is a hardware conflict, thus the other expert suggested that you check the RAM, especially if the amount found is incorrect. Remove both (all) modules and insert one at a time to test.
Hope this helps.

Try to avoid using the DOS mode in formatting and creating/deleting partitions. Try to use the Windows XP Installer in deleting and creating a partition or other any partition managers (but I recommend XP Installer to be used in managing partitions). After creating the partition using Windows XP Installer, try to reinstall the Windows 7 Operating System and that should do the trick. If you have further question, just reply to this message.
