Hi, I just installed my new hard drive with the Jumper settings on but windows vista does not show it in My computer. Can someone help me ASAP please, the drive shows up in the boot up screen (The black and white one before windows boots) as something like Samsung HD160J or something, but its not in my computer for some reason My main Windows HD is an SATA-I and it is showing fine

Ok this is what I done, I'll explain this as simply as I can...
I installed a new SATA-II 160GB drive in my PC, motherboard does not support SATA-II so I used the jumper settings to do it to SATA-I mode. Installed latest Via Hyperion Pro drivers, Drive shows up in EVERYTHING except My Computer. What am I doing wrong?
I am not familiar with Vista yet. Does it have the equivalent of Disk Management, like XP has under Administrative Tools in Control Panel? If it does, can you see the drive there, and has it been partitioned? Sorry to be behind the times on this subject. If it shows, right click it and see if you can partition it there.
Yeah I was just looking at the info the drive came with, and says use fdisk for partitioning, I will see if I can do it in Vista... Ok so I'm daft as a daisy, its now formatting the drive, although it says 150GB, so I'm loosing 10GB
