Running the latest version of Seatools and Windows 7 x86.
It displays the drive twice - 1 drive, 2 entries.
Is this normal behaviour?
In WinXP it is displays correctly as 1 entry per drive.

I have uninstalled the hdd from device manager and let it be redected on boot and the issue still remains.
Every other tool only detects one hdd, is this a known compatability issue with Windows 7?
edit: also tried different intel chipset drivers with no luck.

If it helps anyone, it worked normally (detected one of each drive) for me until I changed something. I'm pretty sure it began happening after running Windows 7 startup repair. But maybe it has something to do with PerfectDisk or Diskeeper.

I have the same problem but with a twist... Running Windows 7 64-bit, Seatools displays one of my drives twice and does not display my primary drive at all. The kicker???? The drive that's displayed twice is a Western Digital. The drive that doesn't show up at all is a Seagate! Running Seatools 1.2. I'm assuming it has something to do with not being able to detect my SATA drives. The WD drive is IDE. The Seagate drive is ST310005 28AS.

Greetings. Is it possible that this drive has been installed twice? (by either of the OSes).
Windows XP has what is called "hidden devices". I've not used windows in so long, that I cant recall right of the bat where the option to show these devices is. I recall it was pretty upfront in w2k.
Also, does this restrict work on the drive(s) in any fashion?

It's not happening to me anymore, but I remember seeing that no drive was installed twice.
Here's how I may have involuntarily "fixed" it:
-Turning AHCI on/off
-Turning native mode on/off
-Uninstalling/reinstalling the controllers
-Reinstalling chipset drivers
-Various other stuff of that nature
