ssd/hdd recognition problems with windows 7

hey guys, im fairly new to this whole computer building/actually half-way decent tech thing. i recently started a build which includes both an SSD and an HDD and i want to use the SSD as a boot drive with minimalistic files on it and have things like my games and movies etc stored on my HDD.

So here's my problem:
i installed windows 7 onto the SSD but my computer wouldnt recognize the HDD in any location other than the BIOS. can someone offer a bit of advice as to how to get both my drives accessible inside windows?
