    I have a 300GB NTFS IDE secondary hard drive, and when i put RC 1 on my computer, it didnt recognize it. i switched back to my Vista 64bit and it is recognized again. Anybody know a solution to this?

    I just ran into the same problem. However, mine would read with the POST up til it got to the SMART and data rate compatibilty test. Then it would freeze. I believe it was something to do with the Active partition or the format. I deleted both partitions on the drive and repartitioned, then did a format. This fixed the problem.
