Question about Computers & Internet
If this drive is good as you say and works in another computer, then the issue lies with your motherboard BIOS. You don't make mention of the make and model of the computer, nor the age. Your problem typically arises when the system BIOS version is too old to recognize the drive because the drive is larger than the BIOS was programmed to handle. You may be able to update the BIOS to accommodate the drive if you can identify the make and model of the computer or the motherboard or BIOS vendor. Check the vendors website for the appropriate file.
If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

There's a label of your jumper setting for your hard drive located at the top of your hard disk. If you have two hard drives, You must place the jumper of your hard drive as master and the other hard drive as slave. If you only have one hard disk drive, set the jumper as master and your cd drive as slave.
