    System seems to load and work well, especially with Logitech home theatre keyboard. However, I have installed the internal hard drive and cannot seem to find it in the computer settings. I know what I would do with a regular pc, however I am lost with this one as far as bios or settings. Normally tech savvy, just not in this case

    If the device is connected physically, try this:

    Turn on, wait for Windows to boot

    Hold down the Windows Flag key on your keyboard, tap E (release both now). Windows Explorer should appear.
    (just a quick double check, the drive isn't showing up here, under "This PC"?)

    Right click the "This PC" entry and select MANAGE

    Click on Disk Management (need to be careful in this area, don't want to format your C: drive!

    Once loaded, can you see the drive listed there? If it is empty (no partition), right click on the Disk 1/Disk 2 (whichever your hard drives comes under) and you can then create a new partition from there.

    Once all completed, reboot for good measure and then check if the D drive now appears.
