I have a strange problem that I cannot seem to find any search info about, either here or using a normal search engine search. I had a hard drive that was developing a lot of bad sectors, so I bought a new drive, and cloned the old onto the new using Macrium Reflect. I plugged the new drive into my hot-swap drive bay, did the clone, then shut down the system. I opened the case, removed the old permanently installed drive, and in it's place I put the newly cloned drive. Closed up the case, and started the system, and found out that the freshly booted system, nor Windows Explorer could see the newly cloned drive. I then opened Disk Management, and the drive was there, but there were no drive letters assigned to either of the 2 partitions on it. So, I added a drive letter to each partition, and things seemed normal after that, normal access for read/write/deletes and such. Also all the cloned data was on each of the partitions, so that part went well. My problem is that after every reboot, or cold startup, the same thing happens all over again, and I have to add a drive letter to each partition using Disk Management before I can use the newly cloned drive. I don't even get the normal option to change the drive letter, just the ADD button is active. Anyone have any suggestions as to how I can resolve this issue? I've tried un-setting the hidden flag thing, but I'm not sure if it even has a hidden flag on each of those partitions, or the drive itself. And obviously my attempt failed anyway, or I wouldn't be posting this.... I could sure use some help on this one, thanks!
