HDD not detected by Disk-management in Windows 7

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I bought a new HDD with 3gig space since I only had 2 112gig ssd's in raid 0. When I fist plugged the new HDD in I only got 746 gigs of space when in Disk Management. So i installed Intel-RTS wich gave me 2tera in one partition and 795 in another to use in Disk Manager. I could only aseble the partition with 2tera, the other one was locked for some wierd reason, I dont know. I then tried several of things.. one wich included disabling the device via properties. Now i can't even detect the hardisk in Disk Management.

WHAT DO I DO NOW!? xD

The HDD is detected by both BIOS and IntelRTS.

Theres a workaround for finding drives bigger than 2 TB. Off the top of my head i cant remember exactly what it is, but a quick google search should turn up something. As for finding the drive again, id unplug it, reboot windows at least once, maybe two or three times, then replug it and see if it comes back.
