Solved How Do I Get My Secondary Hard Drives to Show Up

February 17, 2017 at 20:28:01
Specs: Windows 64
Hi Everyone,
I'm in a bit of a bind, I just reinstalled Windows 10 on my desktop on my NVMe SSD's (That are in Raid 0). Afterwards I can't find any of my other drives. They do not appear in disk manager either.

The PC Part Picker is all of the items in my current setup, but I think the relevant parts are the MotherBoard and Storage.
If you guys can help me out that'd be awesome.

✔ Best Answer
Check if hey appear in BIOS and what it says about them.
Were they plugged in when installing Windows? When RAID was set up?
Check SATA connectors. Try different SATA ports without disturbing primary drive connectors that are working. Check power connectors to them.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Can you post a screen shot of your Disk Management?

Also, did you read the compatibility issues on the page?

Doing the best I can here... And remember, there's always more than one path to success. :)

I replugged the connectors and somehow it worked.

They were showing in BIOS before, so I couldnt figure out why it wasn't working. I still have no idea what was wrong, but its all fixed.

Glad to hear all is working. There are rare instances that just playing or switching the plugs fixes where there is nothing otherwise wrong and nothing really is changed but magically the minor tweak makes all happy again. I try never to overlook the simple and the obvious when diagnosing or advising. Enjoy.
