    Transferred this from General Hardware as it seems to be better siuted here.

    Put everything together last night and all went well with the exception of my computer not seeing the HDD.

    In the ASRock EUFI under the Advanced Storage Tab shows my SSD on SATA3_A1 and my HDD on SATA3_1. Additionally the EUFI shows:
    SATA Controllers: ENABLED
    SATA Mode Selection: AHCI
    SATA Aggressive Power Link Mgt: ENABLED
    Hard Disk S.M.A.R.T: ENABLED
    ASMedia SATA3 Mode: AHCI
    SATA Boot ROM: DISABLED

    Drilling down one page for each device shows, for the HD
    Model number, serial number, etc and
    External SATA: DISABLED
    Hot Plug: ENABLED
    SATA Device Type: HARD DISK DRIVER

    FOR the SSD it shows:
    Model #
    Serial #
    ULTRA DMA
    SMART Supported

    Additional information on computer:
    Mobo: ASRock Z77 Extreme4
    CPU: i5 3750K
    CPU Cooler: CM 212+
    RAM: 16GB Samsung 1600 (4 Sticks)
    Vid Card: Sapphire HD-7950
    SDD : Intel 520 180GB
    OS: Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium
    HDD : WD Blue 500GB

    Any suggestions or help is greatly appreciated.

    Can you see it in Computer Management/Disk Management in Windows? If it's new it might need to be Initialized.
