have two 500GB Hitachi hard drives in stalled in my computer. The C; drive has windows xp installed on it. The second drive had windows 7 as of 4 days ago. Tried to start windows 7 and will not boot up. Reformatted the t; drive so now it is completely blank. Still have windows xp on my c: drive. The problem is the t:local drive will not appear in the device manager, but will show in My Computer.

Maybe you could try reformat this partition again and then create new partition. The problem maybe you delete the partition and then it become free space, so it did not shows in My computer

Thank you so much I will try both suggestions. Although I did try the Easeus Partition Master Professional
I still have the problem of trying to get the partition to work. I can see the 2nd hard drive t:local in my conputer but it still will not register in disk management, or in the drop down for disk drives in the device manager. Still not sure what the problem is, but working hard to get the solution.

Does your BIOS recognizes the Drive?

You could use a live cd or Gnome Partition editor or a linux live cd to delete all primary partition and then constructing a new partition table with it
