Default HDD problem.

So recently I bought a new PC and decided to put in my old HDD aswell as a new one, but the new HDD isn't even there when I go to My Computer.I've checked my BIOS and my UCP, and it's activated in both of them.

Default Re: HDD problem.

Go to Disk Management. Start > right click Computer > Manage... > on the left panel click Disk Management > Find your disk on the right side (it will be in RAW format since it's a new drive) > right click it and choose to format it/create new partition.

A wizard will pop up, so just step through it and your drive will be usable.
