    Windows recognized it but is it recognized in the bios? I have had that happen where windows sees it but the bios doesn't.

    Restart the computer and press either F2 or delete to get into your bios. Find the screen that lists you IDE (or sata) devices and make sure the drive is shown. If not there will be a screen that will find all IDE devices. Go to that and let the bios find the drives.
