Hello all - I just finished another (mostly) successful build. I was planning to use an Intel SSD for the OS/Applications and a couple of games. And then use my HDD for the bigger/less used games and music etc.

However, I can't see the HDD in my "Hard Disk Drives" window under "Computer."
I can see the HDD in the BIOS, so the system recognizes it. Additionally, I see the HDD in disk management. But I can't click any of the options when I right-click the partition - they're all greyed out.

Any ideas on how to kick this into gear?

Try this sticky: Guide: If you installed a new disk but the system can't see it

But being greyed out, I've participated in another thread that had the same problem, but I can't find it right now.
