  3. If it was only one physical drive, it would've been wiped with the windows installation.
  4. It is not showing in control panel or device manager. I did the installation process from beginning. in that drives are showing like dynamic type. And Installation can not be done, it is showing like "Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate existing". Tell me the solution.. Advancely thanks.

    It is showing in BIOS
  10. OK - so all on one hard drive. That's why they all disappeared. Installing Windows wiped everything on the 500gb hard drive
  11. Look in Disk management and see what partitians are showing and the status. Make sure the main partitian is marked active.
