Hey guys..

I am a newbie to the PC assembling world...

I finished assembling my new system yesterday.. ASUS Rampage 3 Formula... with one Crucial C300 64 GB 6GB/S for windows, and WD 1TB 7200RPM 6GB/S for my storage.. don't want any RAID configs.. I have connected both the drives to SATA 6 ports... SSD to SATA_6_1 and WD 1TB HDD to SATA_6_2.. When I was installing windows, it asked me which drive I want to install it to... I selected SSD. but now, the WD HDD is not showing up in windows... is there any setting I have to do in my BIOS? or is there a way to make the WD HDD slave or something?

other configs:
Dell ST2310 23"
GSkill 1600 6GB RAM
i7 3.06 GHZ
nvidia gtx580
nvidia GT 240 for PhysX
Rosewill 1000W RBR1000... I plan to SLI in the future.. :) 

Appreciate any help I can get...

Thank you!

Go into drive manager (run diskmgmt.msc) if the drive is listed but doesn't show a prtition the rt click on the unallocated space and select new simple volume and a wizard will open to guide you thru the process.
