Restart your computer and enter BIOS mode.

Scroll over to the "Hard Drives" tab, and make sure your computer has the hard drive assigned to be on.
Often during BIOS you can select auto-detect or change options with your hard drive to make sure Windows can recognize it.
Once you've selected your desired options, continue to boot.
