|SEE if the disk shows up in Disk manager, if it does then you may just need to assign it a drive letter. If you had unplugged it during the install and then plugged it back in after, then Windows would have done this for you. If the drive does not show up in disk manager then try this: shut down, unplug the drive, start the the system fully, shut it down again, plug the drive back in, and start it again. this may get it reinstalled properly. If not then use recovery software as indicated above.|
You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
