But the new "hdb" device still doesn't show up in Disk Management, it does show in Device Manager, but only named as "xen vbd device #832"

I just upgraded to pre-5

The upgrade went smoothly, didn't need to switch to non /gplpv mode, didn't get unsigned driver warnings (I imported cert when I installed pre-4) obviously do still get non-WHQL driver warnings.

Even before rebooting, the driver had picked up my second hard disc.

After rebooting I was also able to hot-add a third hard disc, it came straight up with the device wizard.

Also the delay I was experiencing at startup is gone.

So all in all, pre-5 looks like a good candidate for 0.9.11 proper :-)
