Installing dual C300?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I have my computer turned on right now and I can go to the BIOS if needed. I have both of my Crucial RealSSD C300 installed into the 6GB/s slots on the R3E motherboard.

When I boot up, the device manager shows that there are 2 hard disks but when I click on my computer, it doesn't show the other one.

I wanted Windows to be on the C drive and all my other stuff on the other.

Any help?

Make sure it's partitioned and has a valid format (NTFS).
I'd bet money it shows up in disk management.
(Start -> diskmgmt.msc)

From there you can partition/format the drive and assign a drive letter.
After this, the drive should show up in My Computer.

I actually saw something on the web that said to check disk management but all I saw was the first drive with like 208 GB free and then a second drive with only 100 MB free.

I don't think I saw it there. But it's in device manager and Windows asks me which disk I want to install Windows 7 on when I format. They both also show up on the reboot screen as 6GB/s drives.

How do I partition the drive?

One thing that's kinda funky is that my motherboard has 2 6GB/s slot which I plugged those into. It also has 6 regular SATA slots and then one extra SATA slot. Only the 6 regular SATA slots show up in the BIOS. There's no option to run one as primary and one as slave.

If it's not in disk management, what can I do?

The 100 MB partition is a portion of windows, and a partition of your primary SSD. Does not show up as a grey disk on the left on the bottom window? You should be able to right click it from there and do stuff to it..

Okay I got to new simple volume.

Does anyone know what Volume label refers to?

Like in terms of the C: drive, is the volume label "C:" or "Local Disk"?

'Local Disk' is generally a placeholder when your volume doesn't have a specific label.
