hi there ive just finished building my new system and its sick!
im only having one problem and that is getting my secondary 1tb hard drive to show up in my computer.
first off my pc is:
HDD: 1TB Seagate
CPU: intel i7 3770k
GPU: Asus hd 7850 2gb
RAM: 2x 8gb patriot memory
SSD: 64gb OCZ-agility 4
PSU: 620w Antec Neo
DRIVE: blu ray burner
Accessories: internal PHOTO/SD/ card reader
just a stock wireless keyboard and mouse and stock cooling fan for the cpu as well.

basicly im running windows vista on my SSD and i want to have my secondary hard drive for installing programs, videos and music etc.
now my computer was recognising it in disk management, people tell me to format it in there but when i right click on the 1tb drive it only comes up with help. all the format options etc are unavailable to choose.
in a moment of being desperate i accidently uninstalled the hard drive from my pc and now im just stumped and dug myself a bigger grave, can anyone point this noob in the right direction please?

thanks for your time
Jesse.
