A friend has just phoned me to ask why his second hard drive icon is not showing in "my computer" yet it is in bios and also device manager, any ideas please. This second drive has only just been installed, thats why he's asking

make sure u have no lastdrive command in config.sys?

look at the properties of the hard drive in device manager - any conflicts etc

Is auto selected on hard drive in Bios?

Can you see the drive in dos?

If it's XP type Diskmgmt.msc into the run box, you can then assign a drive letter if Windows has not done this, he might have to look around how to do it because I have forgotton.
