Make sure all the Hard Disk cables are firmly connected to the motherboard and to the HDD, the HDD will have two cables connected one for power and other for data (red cable connects to the motherboard).

If not then the drivers probably will not allow it to boot correctly.
As far as not seeing it in bios is it a IDE or SATA drive?

Is the network connection on the motherboard? If so we need to know the motherboard make and model to help. Sadly you have provided us with no info.
