Let me make sure this is right.
You are using a standard install of Windows 7.
You want to install it to D:, leaving C: intact.
You change the boot order so your install disc will be detected first.
You cannot install to the D:, it doesn't show up.
Verify both cables are connected to the drive, ensure it is spinning up when powered on, confirm it is connected to the PSU and motherboard. Is the hard drive showing in the BIOS. Was the new drive formatted beforehand or is it a bare, unformatted drive?
