After I gave up on that i decided to just install it as-is and run with it... Long story short: I plugged it in, started the computer, made sure the BIOS was set correctly so that it could be seen, found the drive in Windows Component Manager, Formatted it in Disk Management, Named it, gave it a letter, restarted the computer and it still doesn't show up in My Computer. It's in the disk management, and if I open it there it will let me put stuff on it, and I can open it by typing it's letter into the address bar (typing M:\ like you would anywhere) but My Computer still just won't see it and it's driving me nuts!
Background that may be necessary:
Currently I've got 3 hard drives, 2 are identical IDE drives running Raid 0 and the other is a 120GB Seagate SATA plugged into SATA1 on the motherboard. I assume I've got everything plugged in correctly because it shows everywhere but My Computer (and it still doesn't show in the Vista installation but I doubt it ever will because it's probably something to do with Raid drivers not working in Vista)
Thanks for any help!
PS. I also have a stupid little 8MB partition that showed up after Norton Ghost failed (and a 130gb partition on my main Raid Array that wasn't there before--- What is that?) and I can't get rid of it... any ideas on that?
