Does the Drive appear in the BIOS? If it doesn’t then you have a hardware problem. If it does then it is a problem with Windows. Reply with the answer so that I can help you further.

If the drive does not show up in the BIOS you have a hardware problem. The fault is either with the motherboard or the drive its self. As the hard drive is recognised then I would suggest that it is the drive its self that is faulty or incorrectly connected.
