One drive not recognized in dual boot with separate drives

Hi all,

I just set up a dual boot configuration with two separate drives where win7-32 is my main/EasyBCD drive and win7-64 is my alternate drive.

When I boot into win7-32, I can see the win7-64 drive and its contents, but when I boot into win7-64, I cannot see the win7-32 drive. Is this normal or do I need to do something to make the win 7-32 drive recognizable?

Any ideas or recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

Can you see the second drive in Disk Management ?
Does it have a letter ?
If not, assign one to it.
Drives without letters are treated as invisible in Explorer.

If disk management doesn't see the disk that means there's nothing EasyBCD can do. Disk Management should report all - even unsupported - disks seen by your BIOS, this is extremely weird.
