Add multiple hard drives in Hyper-v


I was wondering how I can add hard drives into my VM on Hyper-V.

I would like to see in the Computer Management  Disk Management:
Disk 0
Disk 1
Disk 2
Disk 3

So it will be like I have 4 different hard drives in the VM.

If I add a drive in the wizard, I can not see it; I only have the default C drive.

I have 2 HDD in my physical box.

    Accepted Solution

    Right-click the VM go to settings then click to Add a IDE drive so you can then select the VHD you added.

    Done that, I had to go to disk management and enable them.
