I had a similar problem.  I had to reset my BIOS settings by flipping a switch on my motherboard and then have the BIOS redetect the hardware.  You may want to contact the motherboard maker to get instructions on how to do this.

Are you sure that BIOS recognize it? If so, please check what's going on your system. Open control pannel and SYSTEM. Is there any marks like ! or X - they mean some problems are in cofiguring your system. After that, you must tell us that informations.

Oh! I omitted one thing. What's up when you boot your computer as a DOS mode. DOS cannot recognize it, either? (I mean 2nd IDE)

Your BIOS setting as probably AUTO
Do not use this
You must fill in the specs of your hard drive in BIOS
