I built this new computer.

AMD Phenom II X2 555
Asus M4A78LT-M LE Mobo
OCZ SSD 32GB
SEAGATE 7K 8M 250GB HD
SAPPHIRE ATI 5670 1GB
ANTEC 500W PSU
2Gx2 KINGSTON 1333 MEM

Heres the problem. I used the SSD as the boot drive, but I cant find the 250GB HD. I hooked up the storage via sata...like this: SSD-sata 1, Seagate-sata 2, front panal sata jumper-sata 3.
Windows 7 doesnt show the 250GB drive since I chose the SSD as the boot drive upon installing windows 7. So, what do I do?

Thx for any help, CJ

Open your Start Menu, right-click Computer and select 'Manage'. Left-click 'Disk Management', find your Seagate drive, then assign it a letter and Format it. Then it should be recognized by Windows 7.

Your welcome cidvicious5, never feel stupid about something you didn't know, just feel smarter now that you do know!
