I have a Seagate 1TB HDD with Windows 7 Ultimate on it.
I installed a Samsung 840 120GB SSD, insert the Windows CD, formatted the HDD, and installed w7 on the SSD.
Now the HDD won't show up in Windows or Disk Management. It shows in the BIOS though. Anyone know how to fix this?
boot off the windows installer cd. go into advance mode on it. look to see if there any partion on the hard drive. it may be that when windows did it install thing..it put the system restore partion on the 1tb drive and not the ssd. or it may blown the partion off the hard drive. if there no partion or if there is one delete the old partion..reboot and remake it and then format the drive. it should with a know good partion show up in windows disk management.
