Well I decided to try out Vista Home Premium today, I installed it to my 30 GB IDE hard drive because a long time ago I lost my scsi drivers and had to do that for windows xp. Anyway, when I went to install vista it listed all 3 of my drives, my 30 GB IDE, my 70 GB sata for storage and my 250 GB sata for storage. So I installed it to my IDE. Now when I went to go into my Computer all it lists is my C: IDE and my 70 GB sata as my D: my 250 GB drive isn't there. Picture 1. However when I go into device manager it lists all three of my hard drives. Picture 2.

So what should I do to get my other hard drive to show in my computer? I have it all set up in my bios, everything works fine on XP. But for some reason, it isn't listing it in my Computer and I have a ton of precious data on that drive. I went into disk management, and all that appeared was the two drives.

Found my problem, Home Premium doesn't support dynamic drives.. bah.. guess I have to format this. Well, thanks for looking.
