hi forum newbie at forum, I have install two HHD in a new system I built from scratch…C drive is where my O/S and the other is connected to one of the other sata conection. I could see both HDD in bios. but not in Vista. Do I have to format the HHD in order to see it in Vista Ultima… any help would be appreciated:rolleyes:

Hi,

that HDD - is this a brand new drive?
If so, you need to create partitions on it at first. See Windows Help for details, please.
