Secondary HD not recognized after reinstallation
Yesterday, my computer wouldn't start up, and I believe it had some corrupted system files from an interrupted system update so I formatted by primary harddrive (a 60GB solid state drive) and reinstalled Windows 7.
However, now when I go to Computer, only my primary harddrive shows up but not my secondary 500GB harddrive. I believe it's being recognized by BIOS but it is also showing up in Computer Management. It says it has all the same settings as my primary (Simple Layout, Basic Type, NTFS File System, etc.) and it says it's Healthy (System, Active, Primary Partition).
If I right click it, I can peruse Properties... but I can not click on Open or Explore.
