Windows 7

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have an SSD as my primary drive. No problem there. My BIOS sees it and it boots. My Data Drive is not showing up in the BIOS. However, when I look in Disk Management its says it's a Health, Primary, Partition on D:.

I can install Winzip to it, but when I try to download anything else it says file not found. It shows it has 932GB of space available but if I try to install MSOffice to it from a disc it says no space available.

I have no idea what is going on. Is this a BIOS problem or a Windows problem? Both drives were working fine and I move them from one case to another. All connections are set.

I'm at a loss.

Is this a brand new drive? You might need to format it for it to show up.

no its already formatted if it says it has a primary partition on D:

If its on another controller it could cause problems, its not on like the SATA II controller and your SSD on a SATA III controller is it?

My HDD is connected to the 3gb/s and my SSD is 6gb/s

I reinstalled Windows 7 and formatted everything. I can install anything I want now on the HDD, but it still doesn't show up in BIOS. However, all programs on the HDD run.

Both drives are recognized by Windows 7, it's just the damn BIOS.
