HDD not seen

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hello,
I bought an SSD and decided to re install windows on it because:

-i had windows vista and wanted win7
-i wanted a clean installation
-some things weren't working

The problem is, the old HDD is not shown is the "computer" section. If i go to manage devices, it is shown which means it is connected and powered properly...
what can I do?

You need to format that drive; right click on computer -> manage -> disk management -> find the hd -> right click -> format it -> done!
