so i had one 120gb ssd that had windows installed in it, i replaced it with 480gb ssd and had to install the windows again on the new ssd...

so i did and after that my pc just doesnt read the hdd i have, it only reads the ssd windows is installed on

even though i checked the bios and the hdd does appear there so its not completely dead or something .

If the BIOS reads the HDD, so should the operating system, in this case, Windows.

 Yeah, you probably had to format it to MBR. Just go on the command line, type "diskpart" without the quotation marks. A new cmd window should appear. On that window, type in "list disk" and hit enter. Let me know what shows up.

When building my PC, I had to dilly dally in the BIOS settings so that a secondary hard drive would show up while using windows. I also made sure to format the drive just a formality. 

 

Is the SSD you are trying to use going to be used as a secondary or primary drive?

In Windows Disk Manager, right click on the foreign disk and select, 'Import Foreign Disks.'
