Looks like you need to set up the drive in the bios. Press F2 and go into the bios menu. Under the standard options menu it will list the drives make sure your new drive is listed under the Primary IDE master if it is replacing your drive with the operating system on it. Next you will need to install windows and all of your software on the new drive if it is replacing the drive that had your operating system on it. If you are not installing Windows on the drive it will need to be formated. The manufacture should have included a set up CD. Put the CD in the cd/rom drive and reboot the computer. You will need to set the CD/rom as the primary boot device if it is not set up so already. If you need help with the bios settings we will need to know what kind of computer it is and if its a custom build we will need the make and model of the motherboard.
