That`s because it does not have a letter,, if you deleted your 2nd hard drive then it is now unallocated space. You have to create a partition out of it, format it and give it a letter.

Another drive will never show up IN your C drive, and C is the name of a partition, not a drive.

If you get your install finished, post a shot of Disk Management and we can advise you on what to do next if you still need help.

Well you said you deleted your 2nd drive, so you erased your data, oops.

This is why you ALWAYS unhook all other drives when installing windows.

See if Partition Wizard will recover the data. or rebuild the partition.

I know my Pro version does, but I doubt if the free version will.

Although, it most certainly says it does
