    Default Windows 8 doesn't see the second internal drive

    Hi,

    I have a problem and need your help. Here is the thing.

    When I do a straight shutdown of my computer, the next time I turn it on, Windows 8 doesn't see my second hard drive. If I then restart the computer, it will see the drive. Any advice on how to make it always see the drive? Thanks.

    It sounds like the MBR is corrupt. Perhaps inserting your DVD and booting to it, then doing a repair of your PC.

    You might want to use an app like EasyBCD to check the MBR and see if both OS's are present. I suspect they are, so the repair might take care of it.

    What are the drives? IDE or SATA or a mixture of both?
    You didn't say.

    We can help best if we have some idea of what we're dealing with. Eh?

    Is your BIOS seeing both drives properly?

    A man with experience is never at the mercy of a man with an argument.
