Few days ago I installed Windows 8 Pro on my second HDD.
I'm satisfied of this version of Windows. On my several years old desktop, it's quite faster then Windows 7.
However, I have a problem with one of HDDs (3rd HDD).
It's 1TB Western Digital SATA drive with single NTFS partition.
Disk Management shows this drive as "Healthy (Recovery Partition)", I can't assign any drive letter. Partition (and all data) is unusable.
When I boot OS from 1st HDD, where Windows 7 is installed, WD drive works fine: I can read and modify all my data and write new files.
In Windows Disk Management partition is listed as Logical.
Do you know why Windows 8 isn't working with this hardware while Windows 7 works great?
Some additional informations:
- Windows 8 Pro x64 (and Windows 7 Professinal x64)
- Mobo: ASUS P5KC
- CPU: Core2Duo E8500
- When I right-click on partiton in Disk Management, context menu show Help button only.
Do you have any ideas?
