Cannot use second hard drive after using DBAN

Hi, I have a Dell Laptop with 2 hard drives in it. Operating system is Vista Home Premium 32 bit. I used Darik's Boot And Nuke to erase my hard drive because I plan to sell my laptop and I was able to reinstall Vista Home Premium 32 bit but when I go to "Computer" to view the list of hard drives, only one hard drive's listed. But then when I go to control panel>device manager< I can see two hard drives listed there, I updated all the drivers already. May I ask how can I fix this problem so that the second hard drive can be used again? I attached some images and I hope this can help explain the issue.

  1. You would have to format the drive and make it active. DBAN erases everything on the drive.
  2. Can yo see it in disk management?

    I have done the same thing. I boot Windows from my SSD and I wiped a mechanical hard drive. My BIOS recognized the drive but Windows doesn't.
