How to install a sata III HDD on a gigabyte mb GA-990FXA-UD3

I just installed a Toshiba SATA III 2TB HDD, and although Windows says it's installed at boot (and it's viewable in BIOS and System Properties) the HDD does not show up under My Computer. Just my C (SSD) and D (optical) Drives are seen. Not sure if I need to make any changes in BIOS at this point or what to do. HELP!

    The drive has to be initialized in Control Panel/System/Administrative Tools/Disk Management
