Is it seen in the BIOS?

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.

The bios must detect the hard drive.

If it does, if the operating system disk still does not detect the drive ....

If the hard drive is SATA , the files initially loaded by the operating system disk probably cannot detect the hard drive because it does not have the SATA controller drivers for your mboard built into it.

If you set bios settings so that the SATA controllers are in some sort of an IDE compatible mode, save bios settings, then the the files initially loaded by the operating system disk will detect the SATA drive, as an IDE compatible drive.

I / we can't tell you specifically what the setting is if you have a brand name computer because there is usually not enough info, or no info, that can be found on the web about one sees in a brand name bios version, but whatever it is, it's presently set to SATA or AHCI and that needs to be changed to an IDE compatible mode of some sort, save bios settings.
