Checkout if the HDD appear in the BIOS Setup. Did you use flat cable or sata?

Maybe a jumper configuration.

It needs to be initialized. Select the drive in Control Panel ---> Administrative Tools ---> Computer management ---> Disk Management. Then highlight the selection and do an NTFS format.

Now you will be able to install Vista (or Win 7) on it.
