Hard Drive: Amazon.com: Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache Internal Desktop Hard Drive Bulk/OEM - WD1002FAEX: Electronics
Motherboard: Newegg.com - ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
I correctly connected the Hard Drive to SATA3_1, my second hard drive being a Seagate 360GB connected to SATA3_2, and my CD Drive being connected to SATA3_3. SATA3_4 and SATA3_5 have nothing connected to them.
I've tried connecting the Hard Drive to SATA3_5 and it didn't change a thing.
Places I've checked:
BIOS - Checked the boot section for any hard drives and even Storage Configuration. Nothing.
Windows 8 installation menu - It doesn't show up there, only my hard drive and the other partition.
Windows 7 Computer Menu, doesn't show up there. Here's a screenshot
Windows 7 Disk Management, It doesn't show up there. Here's a screenshot
I even checked Device Manager, not sure what good this will do you guys

Maybe I have to change the SATA mode? It's in IDE mode right now. I can change it to RAID/AHCI but I have no idea what that is.
Also, I don't hear it spinning. It's supposed to be a loud hard drive..
