Hi All

I am trying to have my computer see the factory installed 2nd drive so I can access it?

I have an Alienware X51 R2 that I have been bringing back to life. I loaded Windows 7 from the CD's which came with the computer.

What is happening is my C: Drive which is 240GB was partitioned correctly, and Windows 7 is all updated now. My DVD drive became drive D: which should be my 2nd internal factory installed harddrive 1TB. Device Manager sees it.

How do I get it live again and see it in File Explorer
