The operating system does not recognize a second hard drive on my T01-1144 Envy desktop. I want to dual boot Windows 10 and Linux. This was no problem on my ancient HP a6512p PC.

You don't install Linux from Windows; you boot using the Linux installer to do that.
I'm sorry, but HP does not provide support for Linux distros.
IF you replace the preloaded Windows OS with a Linux distro, or add a Linux distro, then you assume full responsibility for maintaining that -- including solving any problems with booting the other OS and/or installing the other OS.
Modern PCs with UEFI, instead of the older BIOS, are especially difficult to install because you have to go into the UEFI settings and make several changes before you can even boot from a USB stick -- and we are unable to assist in that work.
Your best bet for support now is to contact the support forum of the distro you are using.

I don't want to touch the Windows 10 that is installed on the machine. I want to set Linux up on the second hard drive and dual boot. I am able to do this on my ancient a6512p PC desktop by hitting the ESC key while the machine is booting. A boot list is displayed and I can choose which operating system I want to use. My problem on the T0-1144 is that the machine does not recognize a second hard drive. How do I get the T01-1144 to recognize the second hard drive?
