I just bought my new pc and found the internal hdd to be defected and had to send it for RMA a few days ago. Since i couldnt wait till they replaced it, so i decided to buy an ssd.
Till now, I was running my ssd with windows 7 x64 on ssd along with my external toshiba 500gb hdd (please note that i sent my internal hdd for rma).
So now i finally got my replaced hdd and i want to install that. I installed it correctly but its not appearing in "my computer". While my ssd and external hdd is still visible.
My technician told me that i will have to install windows on it and remove windows from my ssd if i want to use that hdd and ssd together. I dont know if he is out of his mind or saying true. But i really dont want to use my hdd for windows since i purchased ssd due to major reason that it boots windows faster and runs programs faster and I want to use that hdd only for large programs and games.
Please note-> I just installed hdd, i did not do any type of settings in BIOS configuration (please tell me if there are any settings we need to do since i am a newbie).
Mobo-> Asrock extreme 4
Processor-> Core i7 3770k
My Internal hdd-> Seagate Barracuda 1TB
I think thats enough you need to know.
please tell me a solution so i can use my internal hdd without reinstalling windows, especially when i want to reinstall windows on my ssd. Its ok with my if i need to reinstall windows to make that internal hdd appear as long as i can install windows in ssd.
Just a recalled final info-> I want to use my programs and windows on my ssd and games on my hdd (internal and external both).
