    Extra internal hard drives not showing up in Windows 7
    « on: January 09, 2010, 12:44:26 AM »
    I wasn't sure whether to post this in the Windows forum or here so hopefully I'll get some help in here.
    I just installed Windows 7 Pro x64 and everything seems to be fine except I have 2 IDE drives installed with my SATA C: drive and the 2 IDE drives aren't showing up under "my computer." They don't show up under "disk management" either. I've been using them fine for the last few months with Windows Vista and they always showed up and worked. They do show up when I go into my boot menu at start up. Anyone know what's going on here?
    Thanks.

    Did you re-install all your drivers after the Win7 install ? ?
    Especially the MBoard chipset drivers.

      D'oh! No I haven't done that yet. I was so concerned about getting the installation right that I forgot about doing that. By the way, I meant to say that they show up in the bios setting rather than boot menu. I'll re-install my drivers and take it from there. Thanks.

      No problem...and don't worry...you wouldn't believe how many people forget this because they are so fired up about having everything all new and fast...
