Windows 7: Hard Drive attached by eSATA is not detected

Hard Drive attached by eSATA is not detected

Hi. Just today I finally received my shipment of a WD HDD Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive and a Rosewill Enclosure Newegg.com - Rosewill RX-358-S

I put the hard drive in, made sure it was in the SATA port, screwed in all the screws, attached it by eSATA and turned it on. My computer doesn't detect it. It's not under device manager or disk management.

Help? :\

There may be a setting the BIOS to enable the eSATA port/s. It is on board isn't it?

Nevermind! I rebooted and it automatically did a disk check, and now I allocated the space and it's all set to go.

@tw33k: No, I got a bracket with 2 eSATA ports plugged into two onboard SATA ports. My internal is plugged into a third SATA port and my 4th SATA port is covered by my graphics card.
