Question Samsung 970 Evo and Western Digital Hard Drive not detecting together?

Oct 24, 2018
So I am in some desperate need of help... I just recently purchased a samsung 970 evo NVMe m.2 SSD as my boot drive since my WD 1TB Hard drive booted too slow. My plan was to clear off the HDD and just get a fresh restart. So once that was finished I installed my 970 evo and now my HDD can't be found (on bios or disk management). I have tried everything I can think of to get them to work together and my HDD will show in the bios if my 970 evo is not plugged in (that means its plugged in properly and not fried). I don't know what to do at this point. I was thinking about buying a completely new HDD (Seagate Barricuda) but wanted to see if yall had any suggestions first.
