Hi, I removed a hard drive recently to pull of data from it and store it on my other computer, while that was a success and this computer detected it as soon as I plugged it in and got all of the information I needed off of it, I tried to put it back in the original computer and now it's not recognized in the bios at all and I have tried just about every jumper setting on it. When I try to install windows on it it says it's not detected and when I look at bootable devices in the bios it doesn't show up either. I don't really know what happened and I have no idea what happened to it. I don't think it's dead, but I'm lost.
Thanks in advance.

If it's on its own in there, have you tried it with no jumper present? Are you sure you reconnected it to the motherboard correctly?
