Have you tried going into disk management and re scanning drives?
Windows won't auto detect hot swap drive changes like some other OS's will unless it is a known removable drive which usually is over USB... Other drives can be forced to be detectable that way, but you would have to search that out.

David Johnson, CD

is the drive in a hot plug caddy?
if you change drives and go into diskmgmt.msc is the new driver there but offline?

The mobo manual calls it hot-plug but Intel RST manual says hot-swap. Is the disk part of an array? Is the RST software installed since it won't initiate a rebuild without it.

scott - i always saw the disks without scanning before - but i'll try it
David - no caddy  simple sata connection and in  disk management the disk does not show either
andy  - no array
to be clear i have the mobo lying on my bench and connect like that very easily
