one internal hard drive doesn't show up on restart

soooo I have 4 x 500gb internal hard drives, and everytime I reboot my computer one specific drive doesn't show up. I have to go into disk management and add a drive path/letter every single time.

This is the best info I could find on your problem, on the Microsoft site: Repeated loss of drive letter assignment upon reboot

I know the guy helping didn't stick it out to the end, but see if the first few posts give you any ideas.
