So I installed Windows 7 64 bit. When the install is complete I only get the OS hard drive. Gear is as follows:

Motherboard: ASUS P7P-55D-Pro
Processor: Intel i5-750
OS HDD: Intel 80 GB
2nd HDD: Samsung, 1 TB
RAM: Corsair XMS3

The 1 TB HDD is the problem, it's recognized in the BIOS, and the device manager even recognizes it. But in "My Computer" it just won't show up. The other thing is that it doesn't show up at the POST screen (none of the SATA ports do). I've tried IDE and AHCI modes, nothing seems to make a difference. The OS seems to acknowledge it's existence, I just can't use it. I

I did run the motherboard disk to install drivers. When I leave it in it prompts me to run drivers off of a god damn floppy!! Obviously my system doesn't have one of the relics in it... What do I do?

In device manager, try formatting it (NTFS quick) and see if that does the job.
