Could you post a screen shot of the Computer Management window?
Sounds like you deleted a partition? If so, try a recovery tool. Can't recommend any freeware ones as I use Acronis which is 'paid for'.

I take it you've tried a refresh and a rescan disks? Didn't realise you could delete' a disk, thought you could only delete a partition...

yeah ive tried that, it shows up in the bios and in device manager. but not in my computer or computer management

according to your MMC console you only have 4 physical HDDs, the 160gb hdd you mention is a logical drive partition

That's his whole point - that the drive isn't showing up in computer management..There are 4 physical drives in comp management, but OP has 5 drives in total.


OP - If you put a Windows disk in, and start the install, does the missing drive show up in there? Ie will it let you install Windows to the drive? Obviously you don't actually want to do that, but you can at least format it from there, and get it to show up again in Windows.
