    Welcome to the forums!

    If it were me, I'd try reinstalling the Windows bootloader and if that doesn't make things right, I'd reinstall Windows.

    You might have to reformat the drive depending on what it is now formated to.

    Try changing the hard disk drive to use IDE mode in the system BIOS, then check again to see if it can detect the drive.
