    in addition to the 240gb ssd I also have a 2t hard drive. This is a new build. My problem is the harddrive is not showing anywhere. I thought last night when I finished the built that it was showing up somewhere in bios? I loaded windows off a usb, and never did really set up a boot preference in bios. I tried but would not allow me to make that change, I do have a bios admin password set up, but not a bios user password. So maybe I have somthing in bios screwed up?
