Hi,

you don't mention if the installer saw the disk or not...

Anyway, some very basic trouble shooting ideas:

1. Check if the bios sees the disk
2. Reseat the cables
3. Checked if this disk is ok by putting it in another machine

Hi Evo2, Thanks for the reply.
Yes, during the installation also 2nd disk was not visible. Does that mean either the disk is not put correctly or is faulty?

Possibly. Please try the three troubleshooting suggestions from my previous post.

Cheers,
