I'm using Virtual PC (on Windows 7 64-bit), and I'd like my Virtual OS to have 2 drives. I set it up properly in Virtual PC and now have 2 .vhd files that Virtual PC reports as 1 being the boot disk and the other being the secondary disk. Both drives are selected to dynamically expand.

The Virtual OS is Windows 95 and everything goes right setting that up, but it only has a C drive with the capacity I selected for the first drive. How do I get it to see the second drive (the second .vhd file that Virtual OS reports as being the secondary disk)?

EDIT: Well, I caught myself using 'drive' many times instead of 'hard disk'. Since titles can't be edited, I'll just post this to clarify: I mean 'hard disk' when I talk about 'drive'.

Don't have an answer for you, as I don't use any virtual applications. But I did edit your title so it better reflects your question in the forum topic listing.
