  1. Is your HDD encrypted (with Bitlocker or Truecrypt)?
  2. No, but i sid have a win password log in.
  3. Verify that your SATA data and power connectors are firmly attached to the HDD and to the port on the motherboard (data).

    After doing this, check your BIOS to see if the BIOS detects the HDD.
