Inserted new hard drive into CentOS 7 system and I am unable to find it.
 
Distribution: CentOS 7

I inserted a new hard drive into my Linux computer and I am unable to locate it. It is a 1 TB drive and I need to be able to partition the entire drive. In order for me to partition it, my system needs to recognize that it even exists.

NOTE: I have 2 hard drives, my primary that obviously works fine is 500 GB. The one that the system does not see is 1 TB

The following is a list of SDAs under /dev/:

SDA
SDA1
SDA2

The following is the LVM disk scan:

[awest@Odin ~]$ sudo lvmdiskscan
/dev/centos_odin/swap [ 7.75 GiB]
/dev/sda1 [ 500.00 MiB]
/dev/centos_odin/root [ 50.00 GiB]
/dev/sda2 [ 465.27 GiB] LVM physical volume
/dev/centos_odin/home [ 407.46 GiB]
3 disks
1 partition
0 LVM physical volume whole disks
1 LVM physical volume

If there is any additional info that is needed, then please let me know :)

To recap my objective... I only need to make my CentOS 7 OS recognize the 1 TB physical hard drive that I just added "post OS installation" so that I can partition it.

Thank you in advance!!!!

Code:

sudo fdisk -l
(that's a lower case ell)

There is the output from that command:

Certainly not there.
Start with the obvious - check cables, make sure the BIOS sees it, then start looking through the boot logs to see if it was recognised at all on startup.

The first thing to do is check the cabling, and the jumpers on the drives. I'm not sure of newer drives, but it used to be that with multiple drives one had to set a jumper to either slave or master to get drives to work properly. I admit I haven't dealt with internal HDDs in desktop computers in years, but jumpers or not, the cabling has to be good and correct.

Unless there hard disk in question is an old IDE drive, there shouldn't be any jumpers.
