|The hard drive may have physical or electrical defects that won't allow it to be configured.|
Watch the POST screens at start up to see if the drive is being configured by both the model and the full capacity.
As I stated above, IDE drives use a data cable that is over an inch wide, SATA uses a much smaller, oval, usually red, data cable.
Be sure that you have also connected a 12V power connector to the drive. Feel if the drive seems to be spinning up.
