Angry 2.5" SATA HDD in Desktop

I have a 2.5" SATA HDD connected inside my desktop (through SATA) but my operating system (Vista Home Premium 64-bit) doesn't recognize the drive at all. My motherboard's BIOS recognizes it though. What options do I have? It doesn't show the drive at all under Device Manager or Disk Management.

Type "computer management" into the start menu search bar and hit enter. Then go storage>Disk Management and activate the newly installed hard drive.

Whats Cabbs said.
Also, Make sure the drivers for it are installed.
