Windows 7: HDD detected but not visible in my computer

HDD detected but not visible in my computer

Hello everyone.

I have just bought a new computer and installed Windows onto the new HDD. I've taken the secondary HDD I use for storage out of my old computer and put it into the new one, but it's having some issues. The boot menu and disk management acknowledge the secondary HDD is there, but it does not show up in My Computer.

Can anyone help with this?

Cheers,
Al.

I just realised I needed to assign a drive letter.

Sorry for the dumb question.

It's okay! For those that don't know how to do that and are looking at this thread: Change, add, or remove a drive letter - Windows Help
