Hello All.
I am seeing issues with trying to read a windows 8 hard drive on another computer.
If I remove the hard drive from the windows 8 computer and install it on a windows
7 or xp box  I can see it within drive manager but I can not make it assign a drive letter
(mount)

I can read the windows 8 hard drive within Linux

any ideas ?

Thanks

In diskmgmt.msc (disk management) rightclick the drive and select "online" - there you go.

Thanks everyone for the input.  
I have tested this on a few win 8 hdd's using win-7 O.S. and it does work.
I was trying to do this on XP and it was not working very well.
