The BIOS will have a boot order menu, make sure the hard-drive is listed, add it if it's not. If the drive is not seen at all, reseat it in the case, and try again. Failing that, may need to try a new drive, if the issue does not turn out to be with the motherboard. New drive is a lot easier to try first though.
