Windows 7: Recently removed Ubuntu, 2nd HD Disappears (Asus G74sx)

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Ubuntu couldn't find it. I guess I'll try the Partition Wizard deal, but I don't know if that will work..

My problem was fixed. I checked in the BIOS and it appeared that the option to lock my 2nd HDD was enabled, which made it completely invisible and prevented it from being used. Unlocked to its original state, it is working perfectly fine now
