Can't assign drive letter to new HD

JohnMac328 asked
Last Modified: 2017-11-26
I finally got the BIOS to see the HD but now in Disk Management I do not have the option to assign a drive letter or to format it.  Here is the screen shot which shows what options I get when I right click where it usually gives me the option to give it a drive letter.  I also tried diskpart which did not see it to manually add a letter to it.  I went back and forth from MBR to GPT but it did not make a difference.

WIN10 Pro 64bit

Any help is appreciated.
