Intel Rapid Storage Technology not recognizing WD Hard Drive
I've got the OS on an SSD and want to use the hard drive for everything else. I've got power and a SATA3 going to my hard drive, it is recognized by the BIOS and by the device manager and drivers are up to date. However, when I go to My Computer only the SSD shows up. I noticed in the Intel Rapid Storage Technology program, only the SSD is recognized there so I'm thinking thats my problem. How do I get IRST to recognize my hard drive?
My hard drive is not partitioned also, I'm not sure how to do that when my computer doesn't recognize it.
