Is it recognized in BIOS? What is your OS? Does your OS recognize it?

Not rec. in BIOS. OS was XP Pro and will be XP Pro again. I formatted HD with another computer. No OS on HD at this time.
Thanks you so much for your help.

I Got it...... I used my Respawn CD that I got with the Alienware notebook. Thanks for the help.
