I did my first home built computer a few weeks ago and finally got around to making my SSD my boot drive (was dormant before and I had a HDD running Windows/programs).
I did a clean on the HDD (via diskpart) and then installed Win 7 64 bit on my SSD. Everything worked well on that front.
However, now when I try to find my wiped HDD in Windows, it can't find it. I look in my BIOS and it finds it, but it's not showing up in the boot selection options (boot selection options are only my SSD, DVD-ROM and USB drives).
My goal is to have my boot drive as my SSD and then the rest of my programs on the HDD.
MOBO: GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H (all drivers are installed on it)
Windows: Windows 7 64 bit
SSD: Crucial M4 128 GB
HDD: Western Digital 640 GB
My experiece level/technical savvy: Low
Any feedback/suggestions are greatly appreciated. If you require more information, let me know (in layman's terms) and I'll do my best to provide it.
