cant find second HDD after installing dual hdd kit
installed a OWC dual hdd kit, and installed a samsung SSD. all went well and OS is installed on the new SSD
But i can't find the original 500gb disk that came with the mini. looked in disk utility and also in windows disk manager....nothing....
Any ideas on how make it appear in the OS?

I haven't done the upgrade on the 2011 or 2012 yet but it sounds like you may have knocked something loose and the original HD isn't connected.

in fact keep the mini on its back with the black plate removed. boot the mini with the fan in but the grill removed. make sure you can see that both cables are attached.
look at the second shot see the left thumb. it is near one attached sata cable make sure both are snug. then boot with the fan attached and look for two drives.
