You need to format the HDD before it can be used by the OS.
Start Menu, type is Disk Management. An option for creating and formatting HDD partitions should come up. Open that and the drive should be there.
Initialize and then format using NFTS (unless its over 2TB in size, then use the other that isn't FAT32).
After thats done, you will be able to use it in the OS.
