Hi, I just bought a new computer and I installed windows on a ssd and formatted my old harddrive. I can see that I have the harddrive connected in BIOS but not in windows. I've tried with both SATA3 and SATA2 ports. HALP

go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management

In the bottom-right pane, do you see the "missing" drive there (represented by a horizontal ribbon)?
If yes,right-click that ribbon and if "Import foreign disk" is in the menu, choose that.
