control panel administrative tools disk manager, see if it shows up there and assign a new drive letter if applicable. Confusing because sata port 1 should be the boot drive.
Dude, it's a Dell. Sata port is the boot/system drive. I know, confusing as heck.
The drive doesn't show anywhere in Windows. In Hardware Manager, everything is "green", with nothing showing as disabled or uninstalled. Thanks for the idea though!
