SBS 2008 installing SSD as an alternate drive, not showing up

I don't know much, so perhaps idiot proof your answers.  My SBS 2008 is on an Intel board, I'll post the board number in a minute.  Issue is I installed a Corsair GT Force and it did show up in the initial Intel bios screen as a non-RAID disc in slot 0 and the RAID hd's showed up in 2, 3 and 4 slots and my backup hd showed up in slot 5, but once SBS booted up, I don't see the Corsair.  What should I do?  Do I need to format it?  I think the OS thinks it is a USB drive or something, the way it is acting. I do have it on a SATA port on the board, like the other hd's.  What do I need to do so the OS see's this hd as a drive "E"?
