Hi! So, I just built my new computer! :D  I have two hard drives in it: a new SSD and an older HDD from a laptop (both SATA). I also have Windows XP from the laptop. I'm going to get Windows 7 next week though. The problem is that in the BIOS, the SSD is recognized, but when XP starts and I go to "Computer", there's the laptop HDD, an hp recovery disk, but no SSD. Does anyone know what it's not showing up? Is it just because of how new SSDs are compared to XP?

Thanks!

You have to go into Disk Management, initialize the drive, and then assign it a drive letter.
