Alienware 14 Second HDD Help

Hello all, i am new to this site and am glad i have found other alienware enthusiasts like myself!
My problem is that today replaced the alienware 14 optical drive with a second 750gb HDD (this is the standard one that comes installed on alienware 14's as it was sent from DELL for my pc). I followed the following video
but instead just replaced the drive with my HDD. Everything went perfect and i had no issues installing, however the HDD does not show up in My Computer, Disk Management or the bios. In disk management it still shows a CD rom drive however but the bios shows only my HDD and mSata. No optical drive as it used to before.

I was told to try change the boot option from legace to uefi and then back to refresh the drives but this also had no effect.

Any help would be much appreciated! thanks!
