    I'd suggest running thru setup again. This time, remove all partitions on the C drive and set the new one to 80.

    Check the BIOS first, to see if the system has detected the second drive. If it hasn't, unplug the drive, and reset the cables. Check for any bent pins.

    If it has, and Windows doesn't detect the drive, it might be because there isn't a partition on the drive. Setup should detect the drive regardless, if it's present in the BIOS.
