Hey folks, here's the story, I installed Win7 onto a computer that had WinVista Home...
I did a clean install, in which I booted WITH the DVD, and formatted the main drive I wanted to install on.
Well, I have TWO drives.
and now when I just logged in for the first time...I can't find the other drive on my PC
It's not in the "My Computer" section
I can ASSURE you, I didn't delete that other drive, I only FORMATTED the main drive I was install Win7 on.

Pardon the dumb question, but does it have 2 separate HDDs? Laptop or desktop?

See if it shows up in disc manager.
The easiest way to get there is go to the control panel.
Then type partition in the search box.
My Computer wont show it until you format the other disc/partition.
