Have you formatted the hard drive after installing it? If not, right-click on My Computer, go to Manage, then to Disk Management. From there, you should be able to see your new hard drive. It will show as unallocated, so you'll need to format it assign it a drive letter. Hope this helps.

And make a "Simple Volume," which makes it one partition. THEN you can format it.

Windows will not see any new hard drive UNTIL it's formatted.
