Windows 7: 2nd HDD (1TB) is recognized in bios, not in Win 7 disk management

Windows 7 x64

Also check the 1TB HDD cable if firmly push in; and on the MB, if any.
As you mentioned HDD light stay on, may means trying to read and connect.

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Thanks for your help. I changed where everything was plugged into the sata ports on the mobo. DVD to 0 , the Win 7 boot drive to 1, and the drive that wasn't showing up in windows to 2. They were plugged in hap-hazard like before. Problem solved. Drive D: showed up in disk management and has been working since (about a week ago, sorry for the late reply). HDD light working as it should now.
