I am installing as a second drive, 1 TB 5400 RPM 2.5" solid state hybrid OEM drive, that I bought from Seagate.

 

The drive is blank and I noticed there are no jumpers on the drive.  In BIOS the drive is listed as a second master drive.

 

How do I get windows to recognize drive.

 

Thanks,

Is the drive detected in Disk Management? If it is you first need to initailize it then create a simple volume formatted NTFS.
