I'm running Windows 8 on a PC using a solid state drive as my main drive. I'm using an asrock z77e-itx motherboard and 3 3TB WD Red drives as secondary drives. I am able to see each drive in device manager under hard drives and in the motherboard bios. I am even able to see them in storage spaces, and use storage spaces to create a parity/mirror pool. When I use storage spaces to create the pool, I'm able to see the drive in my computer.
However, if I don't use storage spaces, I can't see the drives in my computer, and I can't see them in disk manager either. I've looked around the forums and tried a couple different options, tried installing the most recent version of Intel Smart Response, updating my intel chipset drivers from their site, nothing's done anything. In summary-
I CAN see my 3 drives in-
-BIOS when I go to storage configuration (I have them in AHCI mode)
I CAN'T see my 3 drives in-
