Click Start, click Run, type diskmgmt.msc, and then click OK. There you can reformat and/or partition the drive as needed.

This will show you more: Disk Management

If you've got any other IDE drives/hdds, make sure you have the jumper (on the hdd) set to the correct setting in relation to it's position (slave or master) on the IDE cable. Or, you can just use the jumper option "CS" for cable select.

BTW: Sorry if you already have it working, but I'm not sure if you do or not...your wording seemed odd. If it is working, then follow ARs instructions for formatting above.
