After closing my old hard drive and booting on SSD I can not see my old drive

[ Edited ]

http://www.screencast.com/t/KpPvsjt6I cloned my old hard drive in my Asus G751JL rogue of gaming laptop. I swapped places between my new SSD(bx300) and my old larger non-SSD harddrive. Boots up nice and fast Smiley Happy but now I can not access my old hard drive. Here is a screenshot of disk managment2017-09-30_1816.pngDisk managementOk finally got the  picture to show up Smiley Happy

I am really hoping that the answer is not deleting that 844g partition :/

You certainly don't want to delete your recovery partition (which presumably was cloned from your HDD to your SSD).  And I don't believe it would have any bearing on your inability to see your HDD.

 

Can you see the HDD in the BIOS?  There's no sign of it there in Windows at all there.  It's not a case of some sort of conflict between the partitions.  The drive isn't there full stop as far as Windows is concerned.  Check the drive is correctly connected physically and can be seen in the BIOS.

It is showing in bios as HTS541010A9E6 (Travelstar 5K1000). Could this have anything to do with that prior to this that drive was my primary(and only) drive in the system. I took it out and moved it to what look like the secondary drive bay and put the SSD where it was?

Well shoot, not sure what I did but it is showing up correctly now.
