Question about Western Digital Computers & Internet
Unplugging the CDROM didn't cause this issue but installing the western digital on that cable did cause your drive numbers to change in BIOS. You need to disconnect the external hard drive from the SATA cable but leave the power connected,then boot windows. Once booted reconnect the SATA cable. Check and see if it shows up in your disk management utility.
To do this, right click on computer, then left click manage. When the management console opens, click Disk Management on the left side and scroll down through your drives. Let me know if it shows up and what it says about the partition on the right, I'll keep my eyes open for your reply.
