RE: 2nd drive not recognized?
Although the drive itself was recognized- the drive space was "unallocated" and had to either be partitioned or formatted with a simple volume. After doing so i was able to assign a drive letter to it. What was interesting to me was that Windows recognized the primary and formatted but would not automatically do so for this bare drive. Also, usually right clicking on the drive would allow you to have an option to format or partition but not so now-you actually have to go to the graphic "bar" that says unallocated and right click that to get the options. FYI

here is a link with a decent explanation:http://www.ehow.com/how_6969031_configure-second-sata-hard-drive.html
