I just installed my new Intel 330 240gb SSD and I am using a 1TB regular hard drive as secondary storage. Both of them are plugged into the SATA3 slots on my motherboard, but the HDD I realized is in the first sata spot (0) and the SSD is the second spot (1), does this matter? When installing windows I could see both hard drives, but now I do not see it in windows. Any advice? Should I move the HDD to a different SATA slot? Also, in my BIOS it is set to AHCI. I also cannot see my HDD in my BIOS when changing the boot order, but I can see it in the storage section of my BIOS.
Every time I boot the computer it does the disk check thing that you can press any key to skip.
Please help! Thanks guys!
I am beginning to wonder if it was because I installed windows on the SSD with my HDD plugged in. I was reading that it can cause issues. I went to the disk management and was able to assign a letter to my HDD that I could not see. When I explored it, it had a windows$ file on it. I am going to format both and unplug the HDD until the SSD is all set up.
MY IDEA WORKED! WOO! This can be closed
