Hey guys i just added a new HDD into my system so i have more storage but the problem is when i boot into windows the HDD don't actually show up. It just has the old C:/ and D:/ and that's pretty much it. I have made sure everything is plugged in, the sata and the cable from the psu. Please help me figure it out :p

Go into Windows Disk Management, initialize the drive, assign it a drive letter, and Quick format it. It will then be ready to use.
