So I literally built my first new PC last week. I've never built a pc before, only purchased prebuilt systems (keep this in mind when giving me advice).
I purchased 2 hard drives for the system, a standard mechanical 1 tb western digital and a 128 gb ssd. I installed Windows 8 64 bit onto the SSD and here's where the problem occurs.
When I go into My computer it shows the ssd and evne shows the external usb harddrive I have but not the mechanical 1 tb drive I have installed. However, when I go into the device manager I can see the 1 tb drive which tells me everything is hooked up properly. I'm not able ot instal anything to the standard drive since I can't get it to show up on installation menus.
If you need my system specs I can provide them. Interested in getting your thoughts.
