Getting Windows to recognize new internal hard drive

Hi,
The internal HD i always use is SATA. I bought a raid controller for other purposes but it had an IDE slot on it so i decided to use the other spare HD i have (internal also).
I can boot off of it and see it in paragon and device manager,but it wont show up under hardware and devices,my computer etc.

Any way to fix that?

You could have also used Window's "Disk Management" to do the same thing. (In case you didn't know this).
