you may need to format it in windows. type in diskmgmt.msc in the search bar (start menu) and press enter. see if your drive is listed there as unallocated space. you can format it so that windows will recognize it as a proper disk. if it isn't listed in disk management, you may need to look through bios (that controller may be disabled, not configured properly, or you may have a bad hard drive)
it wast the controller. thanks.
