If it's being picked up in your BIOS (and correctly) then you may need to look more at the controller that is pushing the drive rather than the drive itself (assuming you've been able to use this drive in another OS or on another system. Ruling out that the drive itself is bad). Is it on a normal IDE channel, does your board have a built in RAID controller?
