Hard Drive Cannot be detected?

OrangeTrick

 So I just built a pc. If it matters its a 6700k build on a z170 mobo. I put two drives on it, one a 500 gb 850 evo and one a 1tb WD blue. The problem is that my WD Blue cannot be detected by the system. I checked all the wiring to make sure that everything is connected to everything but still nothing. Can any of you guys help me please?

Did you check on BIOS?

 

Disk management?

Disk management and make sure you've created the volume.

Disable AHCI and see if that works. On my laptop Win8.1 takes a shit in AHCI while Win7 works fine

I think what I need to do is initialize the disk. Can anyone tell me how to do that?

right click on 'computer' and then click on manage there then will be a tab that says storage and then disk management (if disk management doesn't appear next to "storage" there should be a small triangle on the left side of the word 'storage' then click that ) then right click on the wd drive (where it has the size of the drive) and click on ' create new simple volume, a wizard will then appear and then just follow the process that it takes you through.
