Question about MSI P965 Platinum Motherboard
If the WD drive is SATA 2 and the m/b is "older", try putting a jumper on 5&6.

The bios (MUST see the drive). If the bios does not see the drive neither will windows!
The down below port (as you mentioned) is for IDE devices. IDE1 by name. Use your ATA IDE port for the slower IDE drives or cd-rom drives. (This board does not have a second IDE port).
If the WD drive is a SATA drive connect it to the SATA 2 port. See your manual. Go to page 1-4.
As show in this pic below.

You mentioned the drive is hot. This only means it is running.
Include in this post the model number of your WD drive? So I can check the specs.
