Will not recognize Hard Drive as secondary if set up UEFI?

Scenario:

I have a laptop that i set up with an image that loads Win8X64 UEFI Secure. If this hard drive crashes at all, will i get a chance to hook it up to as an external hard drive to another computer to pull off user files as back up?

I tried to do this scenario before i start deploying uefi secure images for my company but it wouldn't show data. I can see the drive however in devices but it won't give it a drive letter and i can't access it.

Is there a resolution to this problem that i can troubleshoot just in case i run into it in the future.

Thank you in advance.

ok so i can see the drive if its on a Legacy boot system.

But it wont show on a UEFI Boot system. whether its unsecure or secure, will not show up.
