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).

Won't recognize all of 1TB internal drive.
I just built a new computer with Windows 7 32 bit. I installed a 1TB hard drive, but the system is showing only 127GB. Is this due to the 32 bit system. I know the 32 bit will only recognize 4GB of ram and that's what I installed. Is there a way I can have the system recognize the full 1TB?
