I have a new build but im not 100% sure on the ssd and hdd setup. its my first time using the ssd. i have the OCZ 60gb which may not be enough i have already installed windows 7 ultimate but i dont see the hdd in windows. i can see the hdd in the bios but thats it. can things like the adobe flash player and games be installed on the hdd and if so how do you do it? i have looked up the regedit stuff with not much success instrustions werent very good.

you may need to format it in windows. type in diskmgmt.msc in the search bar (start menu) and press enter. see if your drive is listed there as unallocated space. you can format it so that windows will recognize it as a proper disk. if it isn't listed in disk management, you may need to look through bios (that controller may be disabled, not configured properly, or you may have a bad hard drive)
