Default Hard Drive not showing up in windows...

Okay, so I got a new computer with two identical SATA disk drives by seagate, and at first one of the drives was DOA, not even showing up in BIOS or the hardware profile manager....

Now, I got both being detected in BIOS and the hardware manager, but it does not show up anywhere else in windows:



I am using an Asus P5B Deluxe mobo and a Hiper 530 W PSU with the SATA connector:



I have fiddle around with the BIOS settings a lot with and it has become a futile effort. The manual for the board is pretty crappy when it comes to setting up the disk drives so that does not help either.

Anyone have this issue or know what is going on? The hard drive is definitely not dead.... it's spinning fine and dandy
