New Hard Drive Installed

I just installed a new SATA HD. In Disk Management it shows Unallocated. What do I need to do to get it going. Thanks,

In disk management choose simple volume, allocate the amount of space you want, format it, then give it a name or letter. From what I can recall.

You may have to first initialize it. In DM, right click on where it says DiskX (Disk0, Disk1, etc.).
