Motherboard or Operating System issue please respond

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Got a new hard drive, installed it and I cannot access it. Windows says the hard drive is connected to my computer. The motherboard BIOS says the same. Any suggestions on how to fix my problem?

Do I convert it to a dynamic disk or a GPT disk?
