Help, can not find HD.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a Western Digital Blue 1TB Hard drive that I am planning on using for storage and other things. I have Windows 7 installed on an SSD.

The Motherboard I have is the Gigabyte UD3H, I have looked all around in the BIOS can not find it anywhere.

So I went to the start menu, then right clicked Computer and Clicked Manage. After that, I went to Disk Management under Storage.

Here it shows my SSD, but not the hard drive.

However, if If I look down underneath, it has things like "Disk 0", which has the SSD. The 1TB shows up there, but shows as "Unallocated".

Have you tested it on another computer? It could be bad.

You need to format the drive...right click where it says Unallocated and create a new simple volume.

What size volume? I mean, not surew what to do.

Totally off topic, but is it possible to install Windows 7 multiple times to take up space on the SSD?

What ever you want it to be lol. It is really not hard, nor can you really screw it up.

Yes, but why do you want to do that?

I did not mean to do it, I just think I accidentaly done it. XD

Anyhow, when choosing the volume, I thought if I done the full hard drive space that it shows that I would not be able to use it at all, that it would show it as being full or something.
