I believe you said you used Acronis to partition the second drive....

What does Acronis show for it now?   Does it show the partitions you expect?

And what is different about your send drive than the first?   Vendor maybe, 
but what else?   The way it is connected?   SCSI or  ??

Have you looked in the boot messages?

An unpartitioned drive would act this way with fdisk, I believe.

Install   hwinfo   and run:     hwinfo --disk   and see what it says.
