Windows 7: Secondary hard drive not showing up

Secondary hard drive not showing up

Hello, I just installed windows 7 and its great except for one thing, my secondary hard drive (not partition) shows up nowhere. (not even device manager or disk management) If I boot back into Vista (Vista and Windows 7 are on same hard drive, different partitions) I can see my secondary hard drive and everything is fine. The secondary drive is just for data (pictures and documents). I have no clue as to why it will not work under windows 7. Both drives are SATA and work under Vista. Drive 2 does not work under windows 7.

Issue solved!

When using a P5Q Pro motherboard, do not connect your secondary hard drive to the white SATA connector.
