Windows 7: Disk not found

27 Jan 2009   #1

Disk not found

Dual boot Vista64 and Window7 succeeded.

Problem: Windows 7 doesn't see the 2nd disk.

Config: board P5K-E
Disk 1: dual boot Vista 64 and Windows7.
Disk 2: Data disk; Raid1 (Intel).

Vista sees the 2 disks.
Windows 7 doesn't. but..................

If I run defrag under W7, the defrag sees the 2nd disk with Name attached(Data) but no Volume name (as D: or E: etc...)

Tried to install the Asus drivers but Asus won't recognize W7

Any ideas?
