So I have an SSD for my operating system, which works fine. I went to plug my 1TB in after OS installation, and it doesn't register. And yes, I tried turning it off and back on again :)  It's also not the power source, because when I put my hand under it I can feel it whirring and it feels "on". Any suggestions?

Does it show in Disk management , you might have to assign it a drive letter.

No it doesn't show anywhere, after several resets.

Not even in the BIOS.

Did you try another port.

I feel dumb for saying this, but no. But I check the manual and all the ports are identical, and my SSD, video card, and optical drive all are plugged in and work fine. To try another port I'll have to remove my video card, and I was hoping it was a bios issue so I wouldn't have to do that.

this seems kinda far fetched but is in the Seagate drive manual

SATA drives are designed for easy installation. It is usually not necessary to set any jumpers on the drive for proper
operation; however, if users connect the drive and receive a “drive not detected” error, the SATA-equipped
motherboard or host adapter may use a chipset that does not support SATA speed autonegotiation

I would recheck all cables to the drive and to the board... boot drive on sata port 1 storage on port 2 optical on 3 [opinion]

Thanks, I'll definitely try this tonight after work and bring the results back to the thread. This is so frustrating because I can't be excited about my build until every single thing works.
