How to install a hard drive

I just installed a SSD w/ windows 7 and I scraped a hard drive from my old computer and removed partitions and it works perfectly because windows could see it when It asked where I wanted to download windows to.

The problem now is that I have a 500gb hard drive plugged in that I can see in my bios set up. But I cannot see it or save any information on it when I am in windows. Any one have any ideas? Really appreciate any help, thanks so much in advance!

Go to disc management in windows and format the drive for NTFS. It will then be functionable.
