How to add a additional hdd to a Asus G771jm ROG laptop

Hello

 

I upgraded the hdd in a Asus G771 ROG laptop with a ssd.  It is working fine.

 

I want to add the original hdd as a 2nd drive to the laptop,  When I installed the hdd, it doesn't show up in Windows.

 

How to do I add the hdd and have it work as a additional drive?

Dumb question but have you tried to look in the Partition Manager to see if its there?

I disabled boot option for the 2nd hdd since it has  the original os on it. 

 

When I went into my file explorer, it shows 4 letter drives, two are for the ssd I just installed and the other two for the orginal hdd,

Did you check if the bios recognized the drive? if it didn't you might've plugged it on wrong or something
