recently i bought a new kingston hyperx 120g ssd and after a clean windows 7 install i can't access my old 1tb hard drive. It does show up in my bios and my intel RST.but the usage is unknow under Manage Disk tab..It just wont show up in my system and it did not show up in Disk Management either.
Maybe this happened because when I was trying to install windows i formatted my 1TB hard drive(misclick cuz i thought i clicked the ssd)and i exit windows 7 installer after i formatted the hard drive without doing anything eles then i reboot and installed my windows on my ssd.
Try formatting the disk in windows. The drive won't show up anywhere except in the hardware device area. Once you reformat the disk and assign the typical name, drive, whatever you want, it'll show up again. Well, should. No promises .
Edit: I should say I had to do this when I installed a new HDDs in my computer. They don't show up in windows unless I dig through the device manager. I had to format them in the OS. Quick format works for this purpose. Once you assign the drive letter (Such as "D:, F:, etc") it would then show up.
ok guys great news i just fixed my problem. seems the guy on youtube was right i uninstall all my hard disk related drive in device manager and after reboot my pc automaticly installs the driver i uninstalled and boom there we go,my 1tb hard drive showed up.
Thanks for those who trys to help!
No problem neon, I just found out what the exact problem was. once i installed the INTEL RST 10.6 driver my hard drive will not show up in my computer(only shows up in bios and RST)so I have to uninstall that driver again and use the Standard AHIC 1.0 SATA Controller. Hope this helps you folks whos having trouble with your hard drives.
