Hi all...I just got a new system together and I thought I'd give Windows 7 a shot on it since we're testing it at work anyway. But unlike our work systems, mine just doesn't want to cooperate.
Here are the specs:
CPU: Intel i7-920
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD4P
RAM: Corsair PC8500 3x2GB
PSU: Antec CP-850
HDDs: 4 x Samsung Spin F1 (1TB), 1 x Western Digital Raptor (36GB) for the OS only.
My first problem was during install. It wouldn't create a system partition unless I unplugged everything (including the mouse!). I had to dig out an old PS/2 keyboard and only leave the Raptor plugged in.
Anyway, after overcoming that little hiccup I finally got Windows 7 installed. So I plugged in all my other HDDs and this is where my latest problem begins.
Windows Explorer shows only the Raptor and 1 x Samsung drive. Where the hell are the others? So I checked the Disk Manager but nothing there either. A quick check of the System Devices shows the other drives but no Volume information. BIOS shows all HDDs are in there as well.
I've installed all the drivers for the motherboard and got all the updates (Vista ones...there aren't any Windows 7 drivers available yet).
Would appreciate any help with this...been driving me nuts for the last 48 hrs...seriously killing my long weekend.
