I have 1 sata hard drive and 1 ide drive in my machine
The 160 gb sata is c drive and the 400gb ide is d drive where is store all my progs films etc
Usually when i re-install xp i have to disconnect d drive otherwise windows labels it c drive and we get into all kinds of mess.
So thats what i did when i tried to install windows 7 rc. Disconnected D drive and installed Win 7 on the 160 sata drive which was connected.
Come to reconnect the drive and win 7 crashed saying some hal.dll file was missing, disconnected the drive and win 7 works again.
So i thought ok i will try and install win 7 with the drive plugged in and connected.
Installation goes fine and win 7 goes on the sata drive as it should, but now i dont have a d drive.
When i look in device manager it is showing up as online and working, but nothing is showing up on my computer.
I plug my usb removable hdd in and it picks that up as e drive (seeing the dvd has taken d drive).
But for the life of my i cannot figure out how to get this drive showing in my computer.
Many thanx for your help in advance
