Windows 7: HDDs not being recognized

08 Jun 2011   #1

Windows 7 x64 Home Premium
HDDs not being recognized

I have three hard drives installed. Both BIOS "Setup" and Windows 7 Device Manager show all three. When I select "Computer" on the Windows 7 start screen only the root drive shows. Any help will be appreciated, thanks.
