Trying to install ad HD, windows not seeing it.
My computer setup, Windows 7 64bit,MB Microstar MS-7125 Nvidia Nforce 4 chipset, AMD Athlon 64X2 4400+, RAM 4gig (4x1), Graphics card EVGA Nvidia GeForce 7800GT,primary HD Seagate 250gig SATA.
Ok I have a Hitachi 250gig IDE HD I am trying to install on my computer as a back up drive. I know it is not the same brand as my primary Seagate, but I need a back up drive and right now its all I have. This drive is a replacement from Hitachi for a defective drive, I don't know if it has been formatted or not. I guess its a new drive. So I plugged it into my comuter, in my CMOS setup it is the IDE Primary Slave, I have the jumpers set to slave, and my primary HD is IDE, third Master. When I boot to windows, it saw the drive and said , installing drivers for Hitachi HD. Looks good. But when I check my computer, I don't see the drive. My floppy DVD is D drive, so this should be my E drive, but its not there.
I have Speccy utility on my computer and it sees the drive Hitachi interface PATA. I just cant figure out why Windows does not show the drive in My Computer, when it saw it when I first booted up and installed the drivers. And I see it in my CMOS and in Speccy.
