I don't think SATA drives have master slave configuration as such. Its just on which SATA connector you connect that makes it 1st, 2nd or 3rd HDD. Also there is a setting in BIOS in the Boot section to select 1st, 2nd and 3rd HDD's.

If it's a new drive, you need to go into disk management and initialize the drive before it will show up in windows.

Edit: Sata has no master/slave designation.
