    HELP NEEDED PLZ - windows 8.1 - HDD present but not recognized by OS

    Hi everyone,
    I saw that this issue is not uncommon, here is how it goes for me ; can someone please help =) ?

    step 1 :
    install badass PC, with 1 SSD and 2 "old" Velociraptor from the previous Computer
    1 of those had the old OS (XP lol)

    step 2:
    install Windows 8.1
    when I had to chose on which HDD I would install it, I could see the 3 HDD
    I destroyed the old partition on one of the raptors, (40gb and 100gb, get back to 140)
    I formated the other one (raptor 2), but it didn't give me an option to format the raptor 1 (the one I just de-partitioned)
    I could partition the SSD, and install Windows 8.1 on the 100gb partition, leaving another one with 140. However, I couldn't format the 140gb partition on the SSD


    step 3 :
    I go in "Manage" to finish formating there, I could see that 1 HDD was missing, this infamous raptor 1..
    I could also Format in ntfs the 140gb of the SSD
    I rename the drives, and go check where this raptor 1 is gone

    step 4 :
    Raptor 1 is visible in "device Management"
    it is visible in the BIOS
    it is pluged in
    I've reopened and changed the SATA ports of almost all the drives and they reappear in the new order
    it is invisible in "diskpart - listdisk"
    it is invisible in Management

    step 5 :
    let's try to reinstall Windows and see what it tells me when I get to the step of choosing and formating stuff
    well, it appears that Raptor 1 is not there anymore ... but still in BIOS, still in "devices"

    so WTF is going on ?

    the Thing was working fine 10h ago, with the old Windows XP on it, untill i kill the Partition and try to Format it

    now, it's gone, but it's there tho ...

    how to I use this again ? =)

    thanks in advance for your help ^^

    Hey Joe,

    I guess you did kill the boot partiton, for some reason
    Did you try to repair the boot sector/part? Use the Windows 8.1-DVD for that and run "repair Windows". Takes only couple minutes; if it isn't work with the first run, try that two or three times. Restart the system after the repair mode.

    Good luck

    cheers Rolf
