Hitachi SATA hard drive drivers

Hello,
I am running Windows Vista 32bit on a 500 gig hd. I just got an Hitachi 2TB and my machine is not seeing it. The 5oo gig is running ok, but I want more memory. I am using a Sony DVD/RW AWG170A. When I plug in the new drive, I get the message:
Boot from CD/DVD
Boot from CD/DVD
Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk and Press Enter.
I have tried working with the BIOS, but I do not claim to know what I am doing in there.
Help?

    Is the new drive an external drive ?
    Sounds like it is attempting to boot from it instead of your 500bg hd.

    In bios, check your boot sequence again and make 500gb boot device.
