Windows 7 x64 will not see a Eufi hard drive (win 8 ) when hooked up as an external drive

Windows 7 x64 will not see a Eufi hard drive from a win 8 box When hooked up as an external drive

We are trying to add this windows 8 hard drive ( eufi ) to a windows 7 x64 computer for a backup of the windows 8 drive +  Virus scan.  Bios of the windows 7 will see the windows 8 hard drive but windows 7 will not see it   ( drive not found within the disk management )

Any ideas?

Thanks
Eddy

Ok. Thanks for additional info. Now a question - is there any other PC to connect this drive to? And do you connect it internally or through USB box?

You mean Windows Disk Management on Windows 7 pc does not show a connected drive at all?

Thanks for the questions to my inquiry

windows 8 box = windows 8.1 x64 with efui boot (sata) ( HP laptop )

windows 7 box = normal windows 7 home premium x64 using normal non gpt or eufi boot for the C:\
windows m.b. = aftermarket Intel  I-3  using sata

when I add the windows 8 hdd to the windows 7 box (sata)  I can see the drive within the bios of the windows 7 box but windows 7 will not see it - drive not found within Disk Management of the 7 box.

I hope I am making sense here  

Thanks

windows 7  Disk Management can see it's own drive - the win-8 drive is not listed at all

yes, I have four more I can try .. all windows 7 x64 and I connect internally via Sata from the m.b. and not some aftermarket controller.  I assume the current idea is to try the win-8 drive on the other 4 windows 7 boxes to see if it will work on one of them   I will do so here in a few min.  

Thanks
