First of all you need a SATA Data cable from the SATA port on the motherboard to the HDD. Then you need a SATA power cable from the Power Supply to the HDD. Then assuming it powers on properly, and you should vaguely hear a sound from the drive running, you need to initialize the drive in Windows. This web site has a nice tutorial on how to do that. And this video will help as well.
