New build, hard drive not detected in BIOS

I just built my first PC today, and it seems to pick everything up except my Western Digital 1TB Black Caviar. This was on the first time starting up the PC ever, nothing is installed.

I have the HDD connected into SATA3_0, and made sure that it's also connected to the PSU. In the BIOS is just says "Not Detected." My Optical Drive is connected to SATA3_1 and is detected and shown in the BIOS.

The motherboard is an Asrock P67 Extreme 4 if that helps.

I searched a lot and cannot find any solutions.
