i recently built a computer, and booted it up (which works fine) and tried to install windows 7. well, windows could not recognize my hard drive, so i could not install it anywhere. i have fiddled with my hard drive power and SATA connectors but i cant seem to get it to work, any ideas?

Can you hear whirring from the drive? Does it become hot?
