Hey guys, so here it is:

I have 2 drives. One is a OCZ Agility 4 128GB SSD (OS, it is in port 1) and the other one is a Western Digital Black Caviar 1TB HDD(all other documents and stuff, it is in port 2 ). So, both show up in the BIOS ( the WD HDD wasnt showing in EZ mode, but I was able to find it in the advanced mode ) but I cant use the HDD as a drive in Windows, and by that I mean: it has been formated ( even though it is a new drive ) and partitioned, it does show up in Disk Management but i doesnt show up in Computer/Disk Drives. I really need it to work since the SSD is just an OS drive. Am I missing out in something really stupid here ?

I have seen some other people have hard drives/SSD's issues with thi MOBO.

In Disk Management did you try assigning a drive letter to that "missing" drive?
Right-click it's ribbon in bottom-right panel and choose "Change Drive Letter & Paths".
Click "Add"
Choose a letter.
Click 'OK'.
