Group policy management never shows computers. That's by design. Policies are filtered by OU, security groups, or WMI so you never apply policies to individual computers directly. Thus there is never a reason for the GPMC to show computers.
I know what you are saying, however I have a number of 2012 r2, same configuration, that show computers and drive maps. This particular one does not.

The drive mapping preference has a section called item level targeting.  That's a whole different GUI and only appears in preferences. It isn't available in GPSI.
