Is this a new out of the box hard drive or a used one.

If new use the cd that came with it to set it up.

If used you may need to partition and format it.
You can download the manufactures utility to do that

I would set it up as slave and see if it is seen in Bios.....first

It's trying to boot off a network. Change your BIOS settings.
