Fresh OS install, now Win7 only see 1 hd.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello all,
As the title says, I just put in a fresh OS install, have the 2 drive in sig, And now it only sees the SSD. What did I do wrong on the OS install, to make it where it only sees 1 HD and not them both?

make sure everything is plugged in correctly (power / sata cable)

Then to go your start button lower left of the task bar
control panel, administrative tools, computer management, storage, disk management.
Use the vertical scroll bar ( disk 0, disk 1, disk2, etc.)
Find your unknown/foreign drive and initialize it

In the future, if you cannot see it under my computer, check disk management
