Windows 8 Won't Recognize PrePopulated HDD

I recently went through a massive debacle to upgrade to windows 8 on my ASUS g75 laptop.
The only way that the upgrade would succeed was to finally remove my secondary data drive and just upgrade to 8 with my Samsung SSD as the system/boot drive without keeping any settings or apps.
After the successful upgrade, I put my secondary data drive back in and cannot see it in disk management or device manager, but I can see it in the BIOS options. Any ideas?
