Windows server 2008 R2 Enterprise isnt seeing the 1tb drive I have installed

I have a Prolaint DL380 G7, it has the 8 bay 2.5 drive. When i bought it it had 4 of the bays using 300GB drives. I bought 4 SAS MDL 1TB 6G 7.2 hard drive to put in the other 4 bays. When I check disk management it is not seeing them. I loaded a driver update for the server. It still is not seeing them any ideas?

Which controller?  Your controller most likely doesn't support non-RAID/JBOD - the drives would need to be configured in RAID before they can be seen by the OS.

So I would need to set this up in the post?

Unless you have a UEFI BIOS, (or Itanium) then the largest logical drive the O/S will support for booting is 2.09TB.   So I suggest configuring those to a RAID10 and you'll be fine.

(Alternately, use them for a "D" Drive)

I already have a boot drive, using these for storage. I just need to be able to see them so I can set them up.

Sounds like you are already "booting" to a smaller VD with your original disks, so UEFI won't be a consideration if this new "disk" is to be used only for data.  It can be done in the controller's setup utility during POST or it may be done from any management software that HP has for their servers.
