IDE Hard drive detected as Removable device
I plugged my old IDE hard disk inside my computer and tried to install Windows 7. It was divided into two partitions but neither of them permits a Windows installation (which baffles me when I already formatted one partition in NTFS).. So I booted from another hard disk and tried to see if I can use the it as slave instead. It worked but the problem is, windows detects it as removable drive.
After booting, MyComputer doesn't show the drive first. I have to wait for minutes OR I have to refresh the device manager. And then Autoplay pops out! That's the only time I can use it. When I restart my system, the process repeats.
I even configured it at BIOS as Slave but nothing happens.
