    I have a mac pro with two internal hard drives. I accidently ejected one of them. Now I'm having trouble finding how to turn it back on or whatever.

    Try shutting the Pro down completely, wait a few minutes (for the transformer's sake), and then power on again. Open Disk Utility - see if the second hard drive is showing.

    normally you just open disk utility and you will see the drive then tell it to mount. shouldn't need to reboot.

    Try this:
    1: Turn off your computer and wait for about 5 min
    2: Turn computer on and press and hold the C key on your keyboard while your Mac reboots.
    3: Enter username and password if applicable....presto!

    Holding C while booting is supposed to see if it can boot from optical media like a CD or DVD.

    Do what old-wiz said. Disk Utility > Rightclick drive > Mount

    I guess Altemose should have suggested to 1: Turn off your computer and wait for about 5 years!

    Go to the search bar on top, type "Disk Utility" Select the drive you want to show it back, and click "Mount"
    It's back!

    You're right, but more than 6 years late.
