If you cant see the drive in Disk Management (Assuming you were in the right place. That is to say, Right-click Computer and select Manage and then go to Disk Management.), try restarting the computer. Then check again, you should see it now (Hopefully). Then, check to see whether the disk is partitioned. At the bottom of the screen you should see all the blue primary partitions, if there is a slightly grayish, blackish section that means the disk isn't partitioned. Right-click that and select create new simple volume and follow the setup and be sure to tick the option to format the disk as well. If the disk is partitioned, check to see if it has been formatted. That can be seen under the disk list. If it says RAW, then it needs to be formatted to NTFS.
Best of luck to you man! I recently struggled all night to get an SSD set up!
