You forgot to mention the full model of the drive. Either way, you must partition and format the drive (normally) before use. If the drive is not registering in your bios, make sure to check that the cables are firmly seated. If the hard drive is a SATA hard drive, then you may want to try another cable (I've had problems with some SATA cables).

If the hard drive is used, or even new, it could be defective. I hope this helps. If not, I would appreciate more information on the situation so I can help you more.

How do i set a seagate barracuda 7200 hd to slave


you don't need to setup as a Slave drive like IDE drives. You simply install the new SATA drive on an open port and follow the steps in this thread to format the hard drive. This will allow the hard drive to be used as a storage drive or whatever you plan to use it for.

Coumpter will not come up.it's says can't find hardrive


Most of the time when it says that it means that the hard drive has died. Download seatools from website Seagate.com  and use that software, or simular, to check your hard drive. Your windows does not have to work to use it. It has it's own OS.
