If this is a new drive with nothing on it yet, you need to go into disk management and initialize the drive. Right-click "my computer" and select manage. You will see disk management in the left pane. Select it.

You don't want to format or turn to basic. I think that's your OS disk. A new blank drive should show unpartitioned and unallocated - these need initialized.

Strange that your bios just says hit ENTER. Auto, manual, and other are normally what you see for IDE drives. Is this drive a sata drive also? Have you tried AUTO?
