Windows 8.1 1TB HDD Detected for installation but not after Win8 installation?

Hi I just finished building a new gaming rig. When installing Windows 8.1, it detected my 1TB Western Digital HDD and my Kingston 120gb SSD. I installed Win8 on SSD but now after I am using Windows 8.1, it is not picking up my 1TB HDD. I have the latest drivers too. Here is my build:
i7 4770k
ASRock Z87 Extreme 4 Mobo
16GB DDR3 Ram
650w OZC PSU
Thank you for your help!

    right click on it. if it been formated and has data on it give it a drive letter. if it blank let windows format it and set it up.
