  1. I just built my own PC for the first time. Everything went great all hardware compatible and software installed. After about a week or so my HDD keeps being disabled and I have to shutdown, disconnect it, reconnect and then sometimes it is found other times I have to do above mentioned process several times before drive is found or active. I thought it was the Intel rapid storage software, so I uninstalled that. Now randomly when starting up PC I get a message no OS found disconnect all drives that do not have an OS installed. OS is installed on SSD for quicker start-up. I disconnect my HDD, press control+alt+delete as it says on screen, computer restarts OS found PC works. Then I have to go through the process to get my HDD found or active. Some one Please Help.

    Replace the WD Red NAS 2TB Internal drive...

    Any specific reason? I did forget to mention when the WD drive is not found, it does show up in the device manager as hidden. I don't think there is anything wrong with the drive if that is why you are saying to replace it.

    If it is "hidden" in the device manager, there is a problem with the drive or the drive's connection SATA port. Try re-installing Windows or testing the drive if you can. Make sure it is installed as AHCI in the bios, and not IDE
