Just finished booting up new PC. SSD is drive C with OS and Apps.
Installed 1TB WD HDD for data, but system doesn't seem to recognize it.
It came with no jumpers....is there something I must do to have W7 see it?

Oh, I should mention that both the SSD and this drive are configured on the mb as SATA 6G/sec

Thanks

Sata Hard drives don't need a jumper unless you have an old SATA 150 MB. See if the HD shows up in the BIOS. Maybe it died during installation.

I'm in BIOS now and it does see it there, but not in the boot tree.....

Update: The drive appears in the hardware manager, but not listed with any letter. I know there must be a way to assign a letter....yes?

You may have to format the drive, depending on the type it may be unformatted.

That is exactly what I had to do......

Also, right after boot up I get an error message: [SetupInfo] value is NULL.
What the heck......
