Try to load the software the HDD came with and that should recognize it, then set it as boot drive, and restart and boot from CD.

It should work just fine. Just pop in your CDROM and boot from that. Then it will recognize it in WindowsXP setup provided you have the BIOS detecting it. If the BIOS isn't then you have to go into config, etc.
