Just put fresh Windows on boot SSD and Windows won't detect secondary hard drives.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just got done building my PC. Put fresh Windows 7 Home 64-bit on SSD using ACHI. I have two WD 1.5 Caviar Black HDs and one 3Tb Caviar Green. They are all detected in the ASUS Bios. Also, I can't get online with the PC for some reason.

Motherboard is ASUS P8P67 Deluxe and SSD is Crucial 128GB C300.

Sounds like you should go to Control Panel and find Disk Management (under Administrative Tools, I think). Then you'll be able to format it.

Not sure why your internet isn't working -- are you using the ethernet or a wireless adapter?

Congrats on the new machine, btw!

EDIT: easier way -- type diskmgmt.msc into the search box on the start menu.

I found the drives. Do I convert them or MBR or Dynamic Disc?

Nevermind. It's easier to convert to Dynamic Disk than vicea versa so I went with MBR.

Gonna try to get online now!
