    Hi,

    The problem is inside BIOS (Basic Input Output System) setting and you need to check the setting by entering the setup.

    Press ESC , DEL , F2 whichever acts immidietly afterwards POST (Power On Self Test) check and you will be offered a menu of BIOS SETTING.

    Enter the setup and enable the secondary HDD which probably is set off currently. Once set on press Save and Exit option in the setup.

    Now the system will boot normally and possibility is very high that the second HDD will be listed now which will be accessed by you.

    Also dont forget to check the connector and ribbon cable attached to the second HDD for its integrity.

    Thanks.
