Ok I have recently upgraded my computer and now when I turn on my pc one of my storage hard drives does not show up, I have to go to disk management and scan for a new disk then it shows up.

How can I stop my computer from doing this and just get it to show up from boot

If possible, try the drive in another computer. What is the make/model of drive and how old is it?
