If it is not seeing the drive in Windows, check the Disk Management tool from the Computer Management utility(google for instructions).
If it is not seen the BIOS, reseat and/or replace the sata cables and make sure you can feel the drive spinning up. Also try reducing the data transfer speed via the jumper. You will need to check the HDD/manufacturers website for instructions, but it should be something like this: Desktop Jumper settings

VIA's VT8237 SATA controller has a known problem that prevents it from connecting to 3Gbps SATA HDDs.
