Put the hard drive into the enclosure and connect it to the Pc. Make sure that the drive is initialized , partitioned and formatted and that a drive letter is assigned to it. Once the drive is connected you can do all that in Disk Management.
Right click on computer in the start menu and select manage then in the next window select Disk Management, when in Disk Management you just have to follow the steps as the initialize window shopuld be open when you get there.
