Drive not appearing in Windows 7

  1. I just installed windows 7 on my computer (ultimate edition 64 bit) and my G drive ( a partition with 180GB) is not appearing! From the install i chose to do the clean install on my main partition (C drive).

    Does anyone know what the problem could be, and how I can fix it???

    What was installed on the G drive?

    Nothing was installed on it, it was just a partition with music and videos on it.

    By installing Windows 7 you seem to have removed all "extra" partitions, and then created one single partition holding Windows 7

    Do note that the drive letter "G" may have changed, from doing this as well
    ie Check that there are no other drives showing (say E drive or something) that is your old second partition

    Hey, good idea, but yeah it hasn't moved under a different letter. In the hard disk category, there is only the C partiton. Any other ideas? This is the second time that i have installed Windows 7 on this machine, the first time everything worked fine. Odd.
