My 2nd HDD is not detected in BIOS or disk management anymore. This has occured after installing a new M.2 SSD. The SSD has been recognised by both disk management and BIOS but i cannot find the 2nd HDD anymore. The hard drive itself is still working and ive tried unplugging and plugging back in the SATA cables to no success.

FYI: The SSD doesnt have anything installed on it at the moment, my 1st Hard drive has the OS installed on it + some programs and my 2nd Hard Drive has some programs/games installed on it.

Any help appreciated!

motherboard? some port might get disable when you have m.2 ssd.
read the motherboard spec/manual on the manufacturer website
pcpartpicker says : "The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6.0 Gb/s port is disabled. "

guess im using 1 HDD :/
