Hard drive not showing in disk manager or my computer but bios sees it, how can I sort this issue?

Hi there,

I have set up a new 1tb hard drive with a clean install of windows 7 pro on my pc. It has 1 other 1tb hard drive that is visible in the Bios but not in my computer or disc manager.... oh they are sata II drives

I have checked the connections and changed the cables.... think it is a setup issue....any ideas

Many thanks
