Yes, it should show up in the BIOS. It will also show up in Disk Management in Windows which will allow you to format the disk and assign a drive letter and path. You can get to Disk Management by going to Start-> right click on "Computer" -> go to "Manage" -> wait for it to load, it might take a bit -> on the left side go to "Disk Management" and find the new drive. Right click on the new, unallocated, unformatted drive and select "Format." From there it's pretty self-explanatory.

Aer you adding a drive or replacing the original one , a laptop will usually have space for one hard drive unless your adding an external drive.

put a new hard drive in it, a blank hard drive, clean as a whistle, I see it in the bios, the bios does not show how mush space is on it. Is there a way to tell if the hard drive is working?

All you really have to do now is run the Windows install disk and let it partition and format the disk.
