What happened to my HDD??? HDD/SDD missing in disk manager after Windows 11 update

Hi everyone, in desperate need of some help with my drive disappearing. 

 

I "upgraded" to windows 11 in Jan and my HDD connected via SATA is not on disk management anymore. Other SSDs arent showing up either. Pretty much anything connected via SATA (my m.2 drives are fine)

 

- They show up on bios

- Ive swapped out drives/cables ... still nothing

- reinstalled / flashed bios 

- reinstalled windows!

- downloaded chipset drivers etc.

- bunch of other stuff. 

 

When loading windows 10 it shows up but not on windows 11 for some reason. 

I just finished installing all of my apps and dont want to downgrade to windows 10 and start fresh if it can be avoided. 

Microsoft cant help me (I just get "wait for an update" from them)

 

Has anyone else had this issue or any ideas how I can get my drive back and have it show in disk management again. 

 

Thanks!!

Can you find the disks via cmd / diskpart - list disk, while in Windows 11? 

There's no place like 127.0.0.1 💙
