    Hello,
    I use a seagate SATA hard disk as a master disk where i have my OS installed etc. and a WD IDE disk as slave where i usually keep files like mp3s, movies and so on.
    As long as I had windows xp everything worked fine.

    I installed Windows 7 yesterday on the SATA disk, and now i can't see the IDE slave on windows 7. The BIOS (ASUS P5GD1-VM) detects him perfectly fine, but when i log into windows 7 i can't see it in My Computer, Disk manager or device manager.

    Is there any solution to this?
    Thanks in advance.

    SATA doesnt work on master and slave idea, so set the IDE to MASTER
