Hi there djme206,

So your system boots from the WD drive right? Your new drive is not recognized by Win and BIOS right?

My suggestion would be to start with just updating your MOBO drivers.
Is the secondary drive even powering up? In case the issue persists, you can attach the new drive with different SATA and power cables.

Hope this will help,
D_Know_WD :)
